Spring Break Camp

In partnership with the Moab Valley Multicultural Center we offer a full day (9:00am-3:00pm) Spring Break Camp during the vacation week for 1st-6th graders. Each day throughout the week campers participate in a variety of activities that correlate to the days’ theme.

Summer Camps provide a safe, fun, and educational environment during summer vacation for youth entering 1st-6th grade or age equivalent. Campers spend the day on-site participating in activities related to each weekly theme, swimming in the creek, playing at Rotary Park, and so much more!

In an effort to offer programming for more kids, we partner with Canyonlands Field Institute (CFI). In conjunction with our regular summer camps, we will be offering an additional off-site camp, Expedition Day Camp, for youth entering 4th-6th grades or ages 9-12 during two weeks out of the summer. Cost for Expedition Camps is the same as for YGP Day Camps.

We have a sliding scale rate of $65/$135/$195 for qualifying families who apply for a scholarship.
