A SUMMER OF FUN

WEEKLY CAMPS RUN MAY 26 THROUGH AUGUST 21

Spots are filling fast! Please check the theme list below for which weeks have spaces available before you register! 

We believe that your child's learning shouldn't end with the school year. Arches summer camp program incorporates the fun and freedom of summer vacation with the educational elements that will get your child through the dreaded "summer slump." 

Do you want your child to brush up on their math and reading skills? Try our academic mornings! Is your child obsessed with treasure, space or Disney? Check out our thematic afternoons! Each week we explore a new theme with activities, special guests and a Friday field trip. 

Our camps are for children age 3 (and fully potty trained) up through students entering 5th grade! Volunteer opportunities are available for older students looking for service to enhance their college applications. Email our camp director for more details.
