Summer time is quickly approaching and we are looking forward to another fun-filled summer camp program at Cinnamon Tree. Our Discovery Camp provides a warm and nurturing environment with plenty of individual attention from experienced, enthusiastic teachers and counselors. Within this environment, returning campers quickly ease back into our program, ready to enjoy a fun filled summer with familiar friends and staff. New campers are warmly welcomed and quickly feel part of this group.

Cindy will be leading our campers in Hopewell and Stacey will lead our LaGrange campers through a variety of events that are built around fun and exciting weekly themes! Our themes include age appropriate activities, special guests and scheduled trips away from the center.

We will once again in Hopewell we have three divisions in our camp, the 5-8 year olds, the 9&10's and the 11-13 year olds.

In LaGrange we have two divisions in our camp, the 4-7 year olds, the 8 & ups.

 Campers in the different age groups will have their own classroom spaces with activities geared toward their interests. Our program is designed to allow the age groups to interact at various times throughout the day. During these times you might find the older campers reading to the younger campers, putting on a play, or just simply passing on the skills they've acquired through their own camp experiences. This unique feature of our Discovery Camp provides a comfortable, family like atmosphere where the older campers enjoy mentoring and supporting the younger campers.

Bring your towels and sunscreen each Thursday as our campers hit the beach. We will swim at Red Wing Park/ Freedom Park weeks 2-8.
