CAMP ASCEND, YOUTH SUMMER CAMP

Camp Ascend is a summer day camp consisting of three separate sessions designed to inspire your child's inner creativity! Our 9 week camp will be divided into three different sessions. Each session will be three weeks long.

Each 3-week camp session is $300 per child and includes a camp t-shirt and covers all field trips and activities. A $50 non-refundable registration fee per session is due at time of registering to hold your campers spot. This amount comes off of the total session fee. The remaining money per session is due the Wednesday prior to the start of the session.  

Camp Ascend is broken up into two age groups:

5-10 years old

These campers have lots of indoor/outdoor fun with activities and field trips perfect for their age group. Our youngest campers must have COMPLETED KINDERGARTEN. Space is limited.

11-14 years old

These campers have their own space and age appropriate field trips and activities. Our older campers do join in with our younger campers for some activities and mentoring. Space is limited.
