A small camp of only 15 participants ensures every child has a positive and personal experience. Children explore a new and different theme each morning.
They play games, tell stories, create great art projects, and enjoy hands-on activities like cooking in the historic kitchen, hunting for treasure in the garden and dress up play. Each morning, kids show their parents what they’ve done at camp with a fun performance.
$90 for 5 mornings.
