SummerKids


Better than childcare–SummerKids is a place to grow.

Built for working families, SummerKids weekly camps

give your child a place to feel creative, secure and empowered.

 

Learning and fun come in many forms!

With great indoor and outdoor spaces, SummerKids offers theme-based camps for young people Kindergarten through 6th Grade all summer long.  Monday through Friday, your child will learn valuable communication, teamwork and leadership skills as they play, learn and create with friends new and old. Each week, we explore a different theme through: movement activities, science investigations, music, arts and crafts, environmental awareness and working with members of our community, including special guest speakers and performances.

Working Families

We understand how challenging it can be to juggle work and activities, so we offer extended care to give you flexibility and peace of mind. New for 2018, in an effort to increase a culture of community, belonging and to allow weekly themes to be explored in full by every camper, we no longer offer Pick Your Days! Our programs are designed to be weeklong experiences, with activities and projects that build on each other, and build a culture that deepens with full involvement. If a full week program doesn't fit your needs, there are other community options that offer single day opportunities: Check out Bend Parks and Recreation and the Samara Learning Center. Thank you for your understanding!

Extended Care

From 7:30 a.m drop-off to 6:00 p.m. pick-up, we offer early and after care options for an additional cost. Fees are calculated during registration.
