U-CREATE is a Summer Camp for kids ages 6-12 that is designed to be an active camp that both educates and stimulates, while having fun.  The children will be split into age groups. Campers can register for one week or up to all seven. The program provides campers the opportunities to participate in recreational activities, educational activities, arts and crafts, a climbing wall, and swimming.  Before and after care is provided at an additional cost.  All of our camp counselors are CPR/AED and First/Aid certified for children. The camp will run Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
