This year’s theme is “Splash into Summer” and it is going to be a lot of fun! Dynamite Day Camp is for children entering 1st through 4th grade in the coming school year. This program is designed with entertaining and educational activities to keep your child’s skills sharp all summer long.
Dynamite Day Camp runs all summer long — campers are welcome to start as soon as their school lets out! Our field trips begin the week of June 12 and will continue through August 18. Daily hours are 6:00 am – 5:30 pm Monday through Friday. Childcare is available year round and can be added to the beginning or end of Dynamite Day Camp to meet your child’s school schedule.
The $50 Activity Fee secures your spot and covers all of the field trips and special activities. Camp rates are available at $590 per month or $153 per week full time. (There is some limited part time availability, check with your center director).
Every week is chockful of fun activities, field trips, guest speakers and arts & crafts. Check back each week to see what’s happening!
