Club Plus joins the traditional day camp experience with an interdisciplinary curriculum in the arts and sciences to inspire and bolster the talents of youth with academic curiosity. After spending the morning at Club, campers will participate in afternoon classes and activities that combine STEM education, literary arts, visual arts and more. Afternoon classes will be led by certified teachers and industry experts. Early registration is strongly recommended. Available Weeks One through Seven.

Club Plus groups will engage in different activities each week, and campers will be combined in the afternoon in the following ages groups:

  • Groups 2 through 4 (youth going into second, third and fourth grade);
  • Groups 5 through 6 (youth going into fifth and sixth grade); and
  • Groups 7 through SAC (youth going into seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth grade).

Each of the three age groups will have a maximum enrollment of 20 campers during each week that Club Plus is offered in Weeks One through Seven.
