Summer Reading and Learning

Each summer, we strive to prevent the summer slide by incorporating as many learning opportunities and educational experiences into our programs as possible. Last summer, with a large thanks to our summer reading requirements, our students not only prevented the summer slide, but they actually learned.  Here are some statistics from last summers reading pre and post tests.


All campers will receive a camp T-shirt . Shirts will be washed after field trips on Friday and kept at the club to prevent lost or  missing shirts.

Helpful Reminders

  • Please send children with bathing suit, towel and sneakers every day.
  • Children must arrive on time for field trip days, or children will not be able to attend that day.
  • All payments must be received in full the week before children begin Summer Session.
  • Staff must be notified of children who take medication.


Physical Examinations

Any child with restrictions/limitations needs to provide a physician’s note and if the child is on any medications, they must fill out the necessary forms at the Club.
