Summer Camp 

2012 Season:

Runs: 6/25/12 through 8/29/12 

Check out our flyer by following this link  

Our campers enjoy traveling each day to an area State or Town Park for lots of physical activity-swimming, hiking, fishing, and recreational sports. They also greatly enjoy various arts & crafts activities and special events. Each week is theme oriented where the children have the opportunity to design costumes, write and present original stories, skits, songs and dance moves, compete in a mini Olympics, learn about American Indian heritage and customs, and even put together their own circus acts for a “must see” performance! For a little change of pace we generally go every Tuesday morning to Regal Theater’s free children’s movie in the morning and make one fun filled trip to Waterslide World.


Licensed by Rensselaer County DOH we are very proud to say we consistently receive excellent compliance reviews and have numerous families who enroll their children year after year. The majority of the summer, if not all, we have waiting lists, as well, attesting to our camp’s popularity.
