PEAK Summer Camp

Program Information

Unforgettable memories are made at PEAK Summer Camps!

This is our 14th season of PEAK Summer Camp! The themes for this year's camp are listed below. While each week has its own theme, the experience the campers receive will be consistent. The basic format and schedule for each week will be similar throughout the summer but the activities each week will have a unique twist to fit the week's theme. Each week the campers will play games, do arts and crafts, swim, learn something new, and make new friends. Along with swimming every day, there will be additional water activities included in each week of summer camp this year!
