Operation Summer Camp 2021

HR2021_Summer Camp Poster and Shirts_Begins

All year long, we've looked forward to this moment of long sunny days filled with fun, laugher, and friends from all over. That’s right, Summer. And with it, Operation Summer Camp 2021 themed WHO’S YOUR HERO! Our 10-week hero’s journey has finally begun and exciting adventures are in store. And though, it began with rain clouds, and our playground still in the making, we Heroes still gather together to face any weather. So, until the sun begins to shine on our brand-new playground, we will continue our journey on the inside and on field trips where we still have fun, laughter, and our friends.

Specially designed for school-age children, ages 5-12, Op Summer Camp 2021 will have weekly activities and field trips focused on the heroes in our lives who make the world a safer and brighter place. We know that not all heroes wear capes, so for our 10 weeks, we will explore those heroes in our communities, the environment, space, the military, arts, sports, in giving, in business, technology, and finally heroes at home. Not only will students engage in STEAM activities and explore a new type of hero each week through enriching opportunities, but they will also have a chance to make new friends, improve their social and communication skills and have LOTS OF FUN in a safe, nurturing environment.

Your children's health and safety is our top priority. So, in order to maintain the highest level of care for all children, we are adhering to CDC Guidelines and best practices and screening all children upon arrival. Per current child care guidelines, we are limiting class size to maintain social distancing, which means limited spaces are available. In addition to maintaining distance, we are sanitizing at regular intervals throughout the day and reinforcing regular hand washing. For more information on how we're doing this, please reference our SUMMER CAMP CHILD CARE FAQ.
