Schedules and descriptions for all camps are listed below. Registration with a valid email address is required. Your registration confirmation, Zoom link, and any specific instructions from your instructor will be communicated via email.

Camps are categorized below by suggested ages/grades. You know your child best! Choose the camp you feel fits right for them.
