We Trust Kids. So They Trust Themselves.
For over forty years we've believed in following kids’ compasses. Instead of rigid structure, we give children choice. Instead of teaching kids the typical way, we give them tools and gentle guidance to help them teach themselves. The difference is subtle–and it’s profound.
Campers choose minute to minute from a variety of activities including, sewing, stop-motion animation, music, performing arts, makers crafts, bread making, and more. They'll decide what they want to do, and for how long–developing confidence and learning to trust their judgement along the way.
Buy Any Number of Days. Use Them Anytime. Get Refunded for Unused Days.
Our fees cover the full day of care, including lunch, snacks, and all activities and hours (8am–6pm). And with us, families can purchase Day Passes without worrying they'll lose what they don't use. If for any reason your plans change, we'll automatically refund any unused Day Passes in full at the end of the season.

Who We Are
Ready for a stress-free Summer?
You've got questions–We've got answers
We know that choosing the right camp for your family is a big deal, and you've got limited time to make that decision. That's why we put together these quick answers to our most commonly asked questions. But if you'd rather talk to a real, live person–we get it. Our camp directors work year-round and are happy to chat with you–just reach out!
Camp is designed for children aged 4–12.
With that said, due to local regulations, a couple states require campers turn 5 years old by a certain date, or are entering kindergarten before their first day of camp. (CO, VA, GA–We're looking at you.) Please see your local camp page for any specific age requirements.
Due to current COVID regulations, for Winter Break Camp, you'll reserve your weekly sessions as part of registration. Just navigate to the 'Squads' tab in your account to add additional weeks, or see existing reservations. If you need to make changes to your current reservations, just email your local director.
With the trajectory of child vaccinations & loosening regulations, we believe Summer 2022 will be back to our normal daily programming, without requiring advanced reservations. This means you can buy any number of days and use them whenever you'd like–you don't even need to tell us you're coming!
We do like to kid, but we're serious about automatic refunds. Once a camp season has ended, we'll search through any accounts that have unused Day Passes, and automatically refund them in full. If you purchased a Summer Pass, and end up using less than 30 days of camp, we'll calculate what you would have paid at the daily rate, and automatically refund you the difference.
Yes–we refund the full amount you paid.
No–there are no processing fees or anything like that.
All our hours (8am–6pm) are included in the daily rate, and you're welcome to drop the kiddos off at any point during those hours.
All activities are included in our costs, so you'll never have to pay extra for a camp special.
On top of that, we'll automatically refund any days you don't end up using.

That's great! Once we get closer to the start of camp, we'll email you a link to our virtual orientation that has everything you need to know for your first day!
