Palencia Summer Camp & Middle School Camp 2017!

We invite your children to spend another summer with us at our Summer Camp. This summer we will continue to give your children the best summer of their lives. While the planning of the camp is in full effect with your summer camp staff working hard to book and finalize events, we wanted to give you a preview of what is in store! As always children will be thoroughly engaged with our high energy wonderful camp staff in crafts, experiments, sports, games, and events throughout the summer.

This summer we will place an emphasis on physical activity and set more time aside in our day for outside games along with increased time in the pool. We are also branching out to form new relationships with locations for our field trip. You can expect your child to participate in up to two field trips a week, off site and on site, with the exception of the shorter weeks (week 1, 6, and 10).

Below you will find our dates, themes, and a preview of our trips. We look forward to having your children join us for (another) greatest summer ever!  Camp will start on Wednesday, May 31st and will end on Wednesday, August 2nd.  Summer Camp is from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm and Middle School Camp is from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm.
