Call us to sign up for our weeklong 2018 Summer Camps, June 4th–August 10th!
Programs run 9am–1pm or 1pm–5pm Monday-Friday at both of our beautiful eco-friendly centers! Each week will feature a fun theme with coinciding activities, lessons, art projects, games, optional field trips and more!
$185 for Members | $215 for Non-Members
Kids Play Garden summer camps are all about creative fun!
Our Camps get kids ages 5-12 out of the centers on to BIG adventures! The “big kids” will follow the same weekly themes as the younger kids but will have more adventures outside of the center. Examples of this would be going to the Zoo, to Museums, and to other local businesses to see how things are created.
You’re welcome to come for the entire summer, one week, or just one day. Rates start at your family’s rates! Camp Savings are sold by the week.
Special weekly outings are at an additional charge; this way you can choose if you’d like your child to either stay in the center or go on the field trip.
Children can stay beyond the normal camp hours for extended activities. So when the camp day ends, your child can stay at Play Garden until you’re ready for pick up, with extended nights and weekends available throughout the summer at normal hourly rates. That’s what we are here for!!!!!
