About

The designs of SKC are simple – we provide a safe and educational environment where kids have fun and enjoy their summer days. Kids coming to the camp will be involved in many games, sporting events, activities, educational opportunities, swimming, arts and crafts, and much more. Kids will have fun in the SKC during the summer while being engaged in ever-changing activities provided by SKC staff.

Philosopy

We are a service delivery system developed to meet the needs of the community. We are part of a team, working for the best interest of the camper, and his/her family. We are motivated to make the camp exciting and engaging for all campers. This is achieved by keeping campers physically and mentally active throughout the camp day. Through this service, we endorse the development of healthy and happy young people.

Parent Meetings

May 15th at 6:30 p.m. we will have our virtual parent meeting. On May 18th we will have an in-person parent meeting. Parents do not need to attend both meetings. This is your opportunity to learn more about camp, meet the counselors, make sure our information is correct regarding the weeks you signed up for, see the camp facilities, and pay deposits.
