Kids ages 5–12 are encouraged to join us for four weeks of fun in the sun! Children will be split into two age groups: ages 4–6 and ages 7–12. Each week will be themed and will include guest speakers and field trips to local venues along with themed games and crafts such as treasure hunts, paper maché animal masks and water balloon launch challenge.

The day will begin on the golf course or tennis courts where our staff will focus on playing fun games and teaching sportsmanship in a non-competitive environment.
