Summer Camp Details

Summer Camp Details

Summer Camp is a full day camp that runs from 9am-4pm during nine weeks of summer vacation. Camps are one-week sessions each with a unique theme — campers can sign up for all nine weeks or pick and choose what looks most fun to them! Throughout the day, campers participate in activities related to the week’s theme, explore the garden, free play at Rotary Park, engage in teambuilding games, and so much more! Cost for camp is $150 per camper per week.

In an effort to offer programming for more kids, we are continuing our partnership 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 Day Camp is also $150 per camper per week.

We have a sliding scale rate starting at $35 per camper per week for qualifying families who apply for a scholarship.
