Camp begins at 9am and ends at 5pm. We will accept campers as early as 830 and keep them as late as 530 to give parents time after work for pickup. THERE IS NO EXTRA CHARGE FOR EXTENDED DAYS.
Campers are hungry – ALWAYS HUNGRY! We have a lot of physical and mental activities. We build, play, and run. We will have at least 60 minutes of play in the park and will have time in the pool, if weather permits! Please pack a hefty lunch and some hearty snacks. If you want to bring a snack to keep here for the week, please do!
Every morning starting at 9am, we will have silent reading for 30 minutes. I have a nice collection of books, but feel free to pack a few of your kid's favorites, just in case. At around 5pm, there will be "free time." Campers love this time and are free to play until they are picked up. They usually play games together. I do not promote screen abstinence, but if you do, I can definitely find other things for them to do! Just let me know.
Physical contact or harmful words are prohibited. I may have to contact you if harmful behavior persists.

I liked the variety in activities and the warm environment. My child said he felt like he was part of Mike's family.
The camp was amazing! The kids were never bored and learned valuable information daily.
My daughter was happy and engaged. She enjoyed the hands-on projects and the size of the group.
I liked that my daughter loved the camp. She had little experience with robotics and I wasn’t sure this was a good fit for her. I was so wrong. Everyday she talked enthusiastically about what she learned and what she planned to accomplish the next day.
