Our campers will focus on culinary skills. They will make appetizers, entrees, and desserts.

What would it be like to go back in time or forward into the future? Campers will take a trip into time and explore historical times and people while dreaming and imagining the future.

All campers will engage in developing athletic skills, confidence, and sportsmanship with our diverse games and challenges.

The campers will explore multiple mediums and materials. Paint, canvasses, and just working through the creative mind to make beautiful and exciting art.

The campers will learn the when’s, how’s, and why’s about dinosaurs. They will use their 5 senses for 5 days to learn about these amazing creatures.
“Prelude to Kindergarten”
One of our very own BSBA teachers will introduce essential concepts and reinforce the basics of Kindergarten to our students. Kids will learn routines unique to our academy and become familiar with our campus. This camp is a must!
“Space is the Place” Completed K-8th Grade
The campers will explore the vast world above us from comets to galaxies! Each day will be a new expedition.
Week 8 “Wild Week”
