Summer Saints and Counselor-in-Training

Campers in rising grades one through eight have many opportunities to pursue their interests or discover new talents. Each week, campers will rotate through a variety of classes. Athletic, arts and academic options will be available, such as minute-to-win-it games, baseball, volleyball, pottery, animal lovers and much more! 

Students will travel to the Lake Meade Community Pool for fun in the sun on Thursdays. On Wednesdays, they will travel to exciting off-campus destinations, such as Busch Gardens, Top Golf, Ocean Breeze Waterpark and more! The week culminates with a Friday festival—a carnival-like event that includes sweet treats, water battles, lip sync competitions and a costume contest. 

Morning care is available from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., and afternoon care is available from 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Campers will need to pack a nut-free lunch as well as a morning and afternoon snack Monday through Friday unless otherwise notified.

Counselor-in-Training (CIT)

Students in rising grades 9-11 may apply to be a CIT and can attend camp at a discounted rate. They will assist the teachers and counselors and will have a lot of fun at the same time! Please complete the CIT application prior to registering. Upon acceptance as a CIT, a discount code will be provided that can be used during registration.
