Summer Fun

Children have ample opportunities to be active at TNCS summer camp either in our outdoor playground or on the Gerstung equipment and Imagination Playground located in our gym.

We offer “water play day” every Friday, which includes time for the children to play with water toys outside and run in the sprinkler. On temperate days, the class will spend additional time outdoors such as by doing daily lessons, eating lunch and snack, gardening in the greenhouse, and taking neighborhood walks.

Enrollment Details

Sign up for as many or as few camp weeks as you like! Primary campers must be fully toilet-trained (wearing underwear) and dressed in clothing that promotes independence, such as bottoms with elastic waistbands and shoes with velcro fasteners.

Note that children entering kindergarten may join the primary camp or may be eligible for some of our elementary camps.
