Choose from eight sessions of week-long, half-day camps for students entering grades K–7. Two half day camps (morning and afternoon) can be combined for a full day.

Morning sessions run from 9am–12pm; afternoon sessions run from 12:30–3:30pm. For students enrolled in a full day of camp, there is a supervised lunch period from 12–12:30pm. Students bring their own lunch.

Before-care (8–9am) and after-care (3:30–6pm) are also available (these options are added during check-out).

If you would like to register after this time, you can call 410-313-2787 to register over the phone, or arrive early on Monday before camp begins (subject to space availability in the camp). All registrations after 10AM the Friday before each session are subject to a $20 late registration fee.
