Summer Camp

Are you ready for summer?

Summer Camp is a special type of community where kids come together to have fun. Within the camp setting, children develop a sense of independence as they try new adventures away from home. The Center’s summer camps provide a safe environment where children gain self-confidence as they learn new skills.
