About PEEC’s Summer Adventure Camp

Since 1998, our nature adventure camp has helped campers grow and explore while under the guidance of staff.  Our staff are instructors, interns, and counselors hired based on experience and trained in childhood behavior, special needs, risk management, and other camp-related topics.  All PEEC summer camp staff members undergo background checks and safety training before working with children.

PEEC SUMMER DAY CAMP

Campers will enjoy hiking, playing games, and exploring nature under close supervision by trained camp staff.  PEEC’s summer day camp runs from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Lunch and Transportation, in addition to Before and After Camp Care are available for an additional charge.
