An early childhood summer program for children ages 4 and 5


Cubs experience summer at eye level. Every minute of their SummerWorks time is designed to nurture budding curiosities in a safe and supportive environment. At the core of our early childhood program is a fantastic staff hired specifically to work with our youngest campers.

While at SummerWorks, our youngest campers follow their curiosities through various interests in physical activity, art and creative expression, and outdoor adventures. SummerWorks also helps encourage our youngest campers to build confidence by trying new activities in a safe, supportive environment, and develop a sense of personal responsibility through healthy habits.
