The camps are free but if you need early drop off, between 7:45am and 9am or after care from 4pm - 5:15pm that part will cost you extra.

The themes of the camps sound like a lot of fun.

  • June 7th - 11th Oceanography: Exploring the creatures of the deep sea

  • June 21st - 25th Zoology: You can learn about reptiles, mammals and insects. Discover animals far and wide
