Structured similarly to a day at camp, we offer a mix of activities such as fun games, creative projects and free swim to keep kids active and happy all day.

Sports Department Vacation Clinics: Our Sports Department offers sports clinics during school vacation weeks and some school holidays. Each day, children will play different sports and games in an active, fun, and supportive environment. Activities include soccer, basketball, baseball, floor hockey, flag football, lacrosse, golf, tennis, capture the flag, doctor dodge, battleship, tennis baseball and more! Swimming is also offered daily.
