Best Summer Ever

Stay Local and Maximize the Fun

Spend your summer with us to connect with friends and stay active.

COMPASS Summer Camp is a special type of community where kids come together to have fun. Within the camp setting, children develop a sense of independence as they try new adventures. Summer programs are known for providing a safe environment where children gain self-confidence as they learn new skills.

My daughter was giddy with happiness to go back to camp. The coaches actually care about our kids.

Our Camp Standards

Special guest - Harper, the therapy dog

"Boomie" is our in house therapy dog. He is always open to some love, hugs, and cuddles, but this year he is busy taking care of his mama, so he will send in his buddy, Harper. Harper, the beautiful and kind retriever will stop in to see you during our "Dinosaurs, Reptiles and other animals" week to hang out on the sidelines, and to offer you comfort and companionship.

 

We Take Pride In Health And Safety Standards

Outside Play

We play outside and promote activities that allow for personal space whenever possible.

Cleanliness

Every tool, toy, or piece of equipment will be sanitized and cleaned with appropriate products to limit the spread of germs. Participants will be asked to use hand sanitizer and wash their hands frequently and thoroughly. Indoor shoes should be worn at all times.

Small Group Setting

Each week that you register for camp we will be creating small cohorts.

These are the same for the entire week. All participants must meet eligibility for group settings with a 6:1 ratio. 

*COMPASS reserves the right to assess a child's eligibility for any community program.
