Summer Day Camps 2021

 

Friday Favorites Mini Camps (Ages 7-11)
This series of select one-day mini-camps brings together some of summer's most popular activities and outdoor games, along with opportunities to dig a little deeper into the fascinating world of nature. Combine these fun-packed Friday morning sessions with weekday camps to make a 5-day session, or just come for the day! 

For your safety during summer 2021, we are keeping our groups small and avoiding the need for campers from different groups to mix together. All sessions will be held primarily outdoors and will follow all current state and university guidelines for COVID-19 safety protocols, which are subject to change.
