Register for summer camps here!

(Scroll down for a full list of camps)



  • This year we’ve lowered our pricing to $99 per camper (with the exception of 4 day MacPhail camps -- pricing is listed with those camps). In lowering our pricing, we’ve removed the early bird and sibling discounts.


What should I bring to camp?

  • a peanut-free snack or two and drink
  • dress for a mess; we use washable materials but they may not come out of fine fabrics
  • a change of clothes if your child is prone to accidents


The details (staffing, cancellations, etc):

  • Each camp will take place in our big studio (with sidetrips to the bathroom right down the hall).
  • Each camp requires 6 participants to run. We will notify campers one full week before the camp is scheduled to run if the minimum number of participants is not met.
  • Cancellations received 4 or more weeks before the start of camp will receive a full refund. Cancellations received 2-4 weeks before the start of camp will receive a 50% refund. Cancellations received less than two full weeks before the start of camp will receive no refund, but will be issued a credit towards a future camp.
  • Each camper must be potty-trained. We are happy to remind campers (often) to go to the bathroom.
  • All camps are drop-off.  If a parent or caregiver wishes to stay, they may do so as long as they participate with their camper.
  • If your child has allergies or special needs, please let us know so we can provide a great camp experience to every child!
