Summer Camp Fun

Are you afraid of a boring summer?

Our summer camps are anything BUT boring.  They offer youth a chance to try something new and exciting … or devote more time to something they already love.  From Spartan Week to Outdoor Adventure Week, we offer imaginative, fun and exciting camps.

Here are the summer camps – listed in chronological order – offered at the Youth Center and at Silver Spruce Golf Course. When you find one that lights your fire, we highly recommend that you sign up right away. Some camps have limited capacity.
