Endorsement Disclaimer

 

  Below are some of the camps and programs we have selected as award choices.  We believe these to be quality educational programs providing a social and academic benefit to our children. They have been chosen based on a number of criteria including general and specific social and academic targets, outside organization endorsements, academic and civic affiliations, facilities, reputations and reviews, session costs, location,  
 

unique characteristics and program contents.

Nearly all program sessions take place in summer months. A few, however, such as the Bowling Coach Certification Class, some activity courses and winter break camps take place in off- season months.

Please be aware that programs may change or be discontinued without notice. Programs listed here may not always be available every year due to application deadlines, waiting lists or changes in sessions. Every effort will be made to keep these lists current with relevant information.

Programs marked with the flashing star star have donated slots, scholarships or partial scholarships to our program, and our special thanks goes out to them. Clicking the star will take you to the SPONSERS page where you can learn more about them.
