Camper must be self-sufficient in completing their remote learning tasks and assignments. Staff are recreation leaders and not educators.

When not e-learning, your child can enjoy the beautiful 10-acre Maine Park campus with supervised socially distant crafts, science experiments, games in the gym, outdoor activities (weather permitting), trips to the playground, and hikes through the prairie. Register for the schedule that works best for you. Options include half days, whole days, partial weeks or full weeks. If one of our options does not meet your needs please contact us and we will work with you to create a custom schedule.
