Summer Camp

Old Trail School Summer Camp offers an exciting array of specialized summer camps for every interest. Each week, our camps provide children with opportunities to explore, discover, play, and learn.
Each camp program is one-week long and has a special focus or theme that allows a customizable experience for each camper. We offer morning, afternoon and all-day options.

Many combine a morning camp and a different afternoon camp to fill a day with variety.  Transportation and before and after camp care are all available for the convenience of our families. Old Trail School Summer Camp is flexible to meet the needs of busy families and stimulating to meet the needs of curious children ready to delve into their passions. Campers choose from 150+ offerings each summer. We have something for everyone. Safety, Fun, Learning: You can have it all at Old Trail School.
