Camp Max! Perfect for kids having completed 1st grade through 6th grade

Welcome to Camp MAX!

One of the great things about Camp MAX is our ability to maintain a flexible schedule that takes full advantage of the surrounding area, adjusts to the weather, and allows us to tailor the week’s schedule to our campers interests. At Camp MAX we give special attention to creating a positive environment where everyone feels welcome. Our schedule has been planned to create consistent structure without making the week feel routine. We’re always on the go, traveling off site to explore new, out of the way locations where kids can often have the whole place to themselves. Our camp directors spend all year building community space for young people in our after school and sports programs and they bring the same level of commitment to Camp MAX.

Our low staff-to-child ratio means your camper will spend the day under the direct supervision of an adult with extensive training and work experience.


Scamper Camp is open for kids age 3 to those having completed Kindergarten.
