Trips to the pool and the splash pad are Kid City Summer Camp favorites!

Campers in grades K through 4 explore the world around them with field trips and special events. Daily programs give campers the chance to try specialized activities in the areas of nature and the outdoors, sports and games, and arts and media. We give every child a summer to remember! Staff-to-camper ratio is 1:6 for grade K. Staff-to-camper ratio is 1:8 for grades 1-4.

Kid City Quest

Youth in grades 5-7 want a different kind of camp experience, and they get it in Kid City Quest! Quest campers are actively engaged in activities separate from younger Kid City Original campers. Space is dedicated to Questers where they can hang out with their friends and be themselves. Camp offers a break from technology, replacing it with participation in the community. Kid City Quest also keeps campers involved in traditional camp favorites such as swimming, crafts, library time, games and field trips! Staff-to-camper ratio is 1:10.
