Campers participate in three to four activities, daily, for three weeks. We usually offer a choice of activities each hour that includes either a traditional sport (basketball, soccer, etc.) or a recreational or fine art activity (drama, art, board games, etc.). Participants have the option of selecting activities on the first day of camp. Campers are usually able to switch an activity within the first several days if they find they would enjoy another activity more. Our sports and recreation programs may be very active.

  • Participants need to provide their own snack and lunch (including beverage). A snack break is usually scheduled mid-morning and mid-afternoon. Children are very active and get very hungry, so please pack plenty of snack and food items.

    If your child needs supervision outside of our regularly scheduled hours, sign up for our Extended Care program. Our staff engage campers in active or quiet play during the evening (4–5:30 p.m.)

    Extended care for ATDP camps is sold either for the entire 3-week session or as needed on a daily basis for $15/session.
