Reserve Your Child's Summer Camp Spot

This year registration will be handled a little differently than in the past. We are asking families to first reserve their intent to attend Summer Adventure Camp with a $25 reservation fee per child. Gretchen Douglas will then reachout via email to followup on completing/updating registration information.

The system will automatically close when all spots for the group have been reserved. If a group is no longer available you can select to be added to that group's waitlist. Gretchen will be in contact if a spot becomes available. 


Summer camp programming is available for four weeks- June 21 to July 23, 2021. There is no programming during the first full week of July.

On the reservation form you will indicate the weeks your child will attend.

Session 1
June 21-25
June 28- July 2

Session 2
July 12-16
July 19-23
