Grade 8

Rising 8th graders can personalize their camp from a wide variety of programs that provide opportunities to learn, create and explore while having fun and making new friends.

Looking for scheduling flexibility? Rising 8th graders will also enjoy our diverse week-long offerings which provide campers the opportunity to take daily field trips in our OFF We Go camp, build their technology skills in Drobots or Youth Digital design classes, practice their love of sports in coaches’ camps, learn to sew, or create crafts. There is no food service so campers bring a bag lunch each day. Before Care and/or After Care available.

The complimentary bus service is required for campers in this age group. The bus schedule is timed for camps starting at 9:00 am and dismissing at 3:00 pm; there is no bus service at Noon.

August Academic tune-up classes in Math, Writing and Study Skills prepare students to return to the classroom. Register for these classes through "August Academics". Please note: There is no Before/After Care or bus service for these classes.
