Camp Sequoyah

We offer full-day, week-long camps for children ages 5-12 throughout the summer. Each day of camp will feature fun games, crafts, activities, and swimming! Campers will be divided into small groups for safety and spacing. Group will be loosely determined by age as well as families' preferences for keeping siblings together. All activities are subject to change based on weather, staff availability, and current COVID-19 guidelines. No matter what day of the week it is, our goal is to keep kids engaged, active, and, of course, having fun all day long!

Camp runs 7:45 am - 5:15 pm Monday - Friday
Lunch and two snacks are provided each day
Fee: $300 per week including $25 non-refundable deposit (multi-week and sibling discounts available)

Please contact the Camp Director Melissa Caffrey with questions!

Summer Camp & Ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic

Although we’ve entered the new year with more hope as local distribution of the vaccine has begun, we are still planning for another summer with an altered camp structure. Instead of 100 kids all gathering together, we will be dividing into small groups in separate spaces, continuing to wear masks, and staying vigilant with our increased cleaning protocols.

We’ll open registration with 36 available spots per week. If CDC guidelines or state restrictions loosen as summer approaches (i.e. our current situation improves and becomes safer for more people to gather together), we will add campers incrementally from the waitlist. This means that even if a week is already sold out, it is very important that you sign up for the waitlist as soon as possible.

Create Camp (July 26-30)

“All the World’s a Stage”, and all our campers will be the players! Music, drama, dance, and visual arts will fill the week.
