Summer Programs

Every Kid Deserves a Fun Summer

Kerr Street Summer Programs have become a mainstay for so many of our families, and even more important after the challenges that the pandemic has brought. Summer camp is an essential part of growing up, which keeps us committed to providing a great experience for kids in our community.

Our Summer Programs offer kids and teens the opportunity to participate in a structured, full day camp program that focused on fun, positive developmentally appropriate activities.

Programs

Kerr Street Summer Programs provides three options and opportunities for children and youth aged 5–17 to participate in a great, structured full day program that focuses on fun positive, developmentally appropriate activities.

We are committed to creating a positive environment for all guests, staff, and volunteers. The program is supported by carefully screened and selected staff who are dedicated to high quality, safe and inclusive programming.

Kerr Street Day Camp

Grades K-5 (ages 5-10)
Kerr Street Day Camp offers an exciting, high quality summer day camp opportunity for children aged 5-10 years. Each week will include a new theme filled with traditional camp activities and adventures: games, sports and crafts.

Kerr Street Youth Summer Program

Grades 6-9 (ages 11-14)
Kerr Street Summer Youth Program offers a fun and interactive program for youth. They will be encouraged to build new relationships and take part in opportunities to try new things.

Leader In Training

High School (ages 14-17)
The LIT program offers students a chance to learn from staff, develop leadership skills, and have a whole lot of fun during the summer. Through training and practical application with the camp, students will have the opportunity to invest in the lives of the campers and in skills for their own futures. As part of the LIT program, students will participate in community service projects and take part in the same activities as the campers, help to plan and run some of those activities and earn volunteer hours.
