My kids love summer camp!  As a parent, I love that my children are doing several hands-on activities that you might not see in a traditional summer camp environment.  They especially love meeting the animals and exploring the gardens.

  • Animal Encounters
  • Outdoor Classroom
  • Gardening Opportunites
  • Water Activities
  • Community Service Hours available for HS students
  • Jr. Counselor programs
  • ​Elementary and Preschool Programs available all summer
  • Camp Registration: There are still openings for certain weeks of Summer Camp.  You may pick which days of the week your child attends.  There is a 2 day minimum requirement.  
  • Pick-up and Drop-Off: If you need to bring your child late or have a special pick-up time, please just walk them up to the main camp entrance.    
  • Outdoor Activities:  We will be outside for most of Summer Camp.  Please put sunscreen and bug spray on your child.    

You have raced boats that you made from recycled materials.  You have created bird feeders from oranges that you hammered and cleaned.  You have painted our Jr. Kindergarten door.  You have built towers out of pretzels and marshmallows.  YOU have been "Busy Builders"!

​Now are you ready to meet Banana, Bell and Sally?  These rescued animals are ready to meet you!  We will feed, touch and hold a variety of animals during this action packed week.  There will be crafts, games and don't forget "Water Day"!  This week Water Day will be on Wednesday, so remember to send your child to camp in a swimsuit and send a towel and sunscreen.  We can't wait to see you for this wild week of fun!

We are looking forward to seeing all of your smiles soon!
