Do you love books? Are you a dinosaur enthusiast? Bring your imagination and join us on an adventure back in time 65 million years to the Cretaceous Period with Magic Tree House: Dinosaurs Before Dark camp!

Jack and Annie find themselves in another exciting predicament, and we get to tag along! We will have morning story time followed by games, projects, and crafts inspired by the fun facts and mysteries uncovered in our summer reading.


Despite the abundance of summer programming options, students still return to school feeling sluggish and suffering from what teachers call the "summer slide." The Putnam helps students avoid this decline in skills with summer camps that strike a winning balance of fun, education and care.

Before-care is available for a $5 fee, and lunchtime extended care is provided at no charge for campers who opt to combine two half-day camps for a full-day experience. After-care is not available for half-day camps.
