Summer Camp

8 weeks – 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday Through Friday

Summer is a time for kids to relax and enjoy themselves with friends. Each day of camp will be a mix of structured and unstructured time, with plans following each week’s theme. We will offer a variety of arts, sports, and specialized activities tailored to meet the needs of the group. Weekly field trips and occasional on-site guests mean no one risks “being bored” this summer!

Summer Camp FAQ

What time does camp run? Will there be before or after care?

Camp runs 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM, Monday through Friday. We do not have before or after care this summer.

What kind of activities will there be?

Daily activities will vary, but will include a variety of arts, sports, cooking, group games, relaxation, and fun. Some days will include walks to neighborhood parks. And every week we will go on a super fun field trip!

Will my child need to bring lunch?

Yes. Please send your child to camp with lunch every day, as there will be no lunch provided. There may be special field trips or parties when a lunch is not needed; you will be notified of these in advance.

Pilgrim Summer Camp is peanut and treenut restricted. Please be sure all items sent for lunch are peanut and treenut free.

How much time will be spent outdoors?

The weather will determine how much we are able to spend time outdoors. If the heat index is above 85 degrees, we will limit the amount of time we are outside.

What should my child bring to camp?

Please bring a lunch, water bottle, gym shoes, and sunscreen to camp. Leave all electronics at home. Cell phones must be turned off and kept in their backpacks.

All field trip costs are covered by your camp tuition.

Can non-Pilgrim families attend camp?

YES! We are open to all children who have finished kindergarten through fifth grade.
