Specialty Camps

Specialty camps allow kids to focus on a particular area of interest at a summer-relaxed pace. No tests or quizzes, but plenty of “ah-ha!” moments punctuate each camp. The variety of subjects offered means your kids can try something new each week. Specialty Camps are grouped into areas of interest:

Academic Enrichment
Our programs in math, reading, writing and more give students a boost as thought turns to the upcoming school year. 
 
Animals
A variety of programs brings all areas of the animal kingdom to campers. Inspire "awww" all summer long. 
 
The Arts
"The camp was so much fun that the kids didn’t even realize how much they were learning....really a must for any student!"
-- Michelle, parent of a Creative Writing Institute camper
 
Let your child’s creative side shine in one of our many arts camps taught by experienced teachers from PDS and from CreativeKids. Experts in the fine arts and the performing arts help campers express themselves in a relaxed, fun environment. 
 
Cooking
Fun is the main ingredient in our deliciously educational cooking camps with Mrs. Balzer. A yummy summer awaits your child. 
 
Culture
Children learn to think like global citizens in programs that take them around the world...without ever leaving camp! From Austria to New Zealand and many places in between, campers experience the music, food, crafts, and culture of their international peers. 
 
Games & Hobbies
Curb your child’s boredom! These games and hobbies will keep them interested while they learn valuable life skills such as persistence, perseverance, and good sportsmanship. 
 
Health & Wellness
Take care of the body AND mind in camps that focus on your camper’s well-being. We offer a variety of opportunities for boys and girls, including yoga camps and Michelle in the Middle programs, to learn and develop habits for lifelong health. 
 
Music
Piano, guitar, ukulele, drums....we make music all summer long in programs that get fingers a-strummin' and toes a-tappin'. 
 
Science
Brand new programs await budding scientists in 2020!
 
STEM
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math….our STEM camps incorporate the disciplines that help kids advance in school and achieve their goals. Programs in 3D printing, coding, web development and more will challenge your camper as they explore technology at their own pace.
 
Charger Chill Day Camp
Let your child decompress at Charger Chill Day Camp. This loosely-structured camp ensures plenty of time to play, relax, and enjoy being a kid. The Charger Chill bonus? Our camp water park brings cooling relief to those hot summer afternoons. 
 
Theater
Drama kings and queens can soak up the applause in our multi-week production camps by CreativeKids. An audition and release of parts prior to the start of camp helps ease the suspense and ensure a smooth start to each production.
