Our camp is licensed through the Plymouth Board of Health.
Camp should be fun…and ours is, but we have a greater goal. Our goal is to accomplish “Brain Gain” and reduce summer learning losses.
We offer a 5, 4 or 3 day program (prices below). If you choose the 3 or 4 day program, for more than one child, they must attend on the same days. Families can choose whatever weeks they would like. Please let staff know by the Thursday if you’d like to sign your camper up for the following week to ensure we have capacity.
NOTE: Due to safety regulations, Flip Flops are not allowed. Sneakers or running shoes are safest for daily physical activity.
All children who are attending camp must also have a current club membership.
The Club membership fee is $50 per child as of 1/1/23 for new and renewing members.

Counselors in Training (ages 14 & 15)- $110 for 5 days, $90 for 3 days
State law requires 6 year old campers to have 2 counselors for each group of 10 or 1 extra counselor per group. Therefore, there is a $10 weekly surcharge for 6 year old’s.
All groups over age six have a 10 – 1 counselor ratio.
Campers are divided up by age group. Ages 11-13 will be in one group unless the ratio becomes 1:10.
NOTE: Camp shirts must be worn every day. First camp shirt is free, additional camp shirts can be purchased for $15.00.
A color coded t-shirt (by age) is provided free to each camper.
Camp shirts enhance “a sense of belonging” and help us keep age-appropriate groups together.
