Join us for Summer Camps 2015 !!

Our goal is to keep your child energized and active. We are planning super fun activities that will appeal to each group of children. We will offer arts & crafts, board games, gym games, quiet-time, swimming, playground time, special trips and so much more! The older group of campers will spend the majority of their time outdoors. Their activities will include many physical activities, water activities, hiking, and team building activities. Our youngest Sakari campers will spend their time at the YMCA with indoor and outdoor activities. Camp Koda will based at the YMCA and will have 2 outings to a public pool and 1 weekly field trip. Children attending sports camps will learn more about a sport and work to perfect their own skills.

Many of last year’s staff will be returning, they bring years of experience and are ready to make this summer fun! All of our staff are First-Aid and CPR certified and strive to keep safety as a top priority in all activities while challenging campers to reach beyond their comfort zones.
