Update as of 6/22/2021: The morning session of our summer camp is full. Please contact us if you want to be added to the waitlist or you are welcome to participate in the afternoon. We are changing the suggested age group for the afternoon session to ages 10 to 21. This is fairly flexible if you think that your child would enjoy being in the afternoon session.
Our participants are people ages 5 to 21 with and without disabilities. We are currently registering people for our 2021 summer camp! Our summer camp is every Friday from July 9th to August 20th. We will have limited capacity, so we will accept on a first-come-first serve basis and have a wait-list.
We will have two sessions.
9 to 11 AM for ages 5 to 12
12 to 2 PM for ages 13 to 21
This summer camp is FREE to all participants!
