The daily rate is $65 and weekly rate is $255.

If families register before March 24, the rate is $230 per week. Before and after care is available starting at 7 a.m. and ending at 6 p.m. at 17615 N.E. Glisan St.

The camp is for kids entering kindergarten through fifth grade in the fall.

There are also leadership opportunities for students entering sixth through ninth grades.
