KEEPERS Camp is almost sold out!

If your child is entering grade 2-4 for summer 2024, we'd love to have them at camp! 

KEEPERS Camp is back with a twist! We're partnering with the Community Literacy Center (CLC) to bring your child the ultimate camp experience at Camp Pageturner.

Throughout the summer, we'll be offering week-long, full-day camp experiences, allowing your child to explore STEM, improve their literacy, and get out their energy with pool time. Camp Pageturner runs for 6 weeks, and we'll be partnering with them for 4 of those sessions! Of course, if the Pageturner camp themes interest your child, we'd love to have them throughout the summer. 

If you're looking for the traditional half-day KEEPERS experience, teachers Carmelina and Sherri will be returning to host half-day KEEPERS camp from July 1st-3rd (register here). They've been hard at work revamping the curriculum so there's new, fun, stimulating activities for your child. If you're interested in a full-day experience for your child during this week, they can also register for Pageturners in the afternoon.

Other STEM/literacy immersion camp sessions include:
- Session 3, July 8-12 - YIP, YIP, Hooray! (Invention theme)
- Session 5, July 22-26 - GLOBE-al Nature Writers (Environment theme)
- Session 6, July 29-Aug 2 - Mathemagicians (Math & Magic theme)

You can register for these KEEPERS + Pageturners collaboration camps here.

Check the Summer Youth Programs website for more UNH camp information.

What's camp like?

"She came home SO excited every day and shared everything she'd learned. She and Rye were talking this afternoon about how excited the are to attend again next year and one of Hazel's brothers can't wait until he's old enough as well." - Parent, 7 yr old 

"This is the funnest camp I've been to in a long time." - Joe, 7 yr old

"This is by far Rye's favorite summer camp - every day she came home saying "Today was the best day ever! Tomorrow is going to be the best day ever!". Feel so lucky to have opportunities like this for her to explore STEM, meet scientists, and do fun art projects. She's already wondering if she can work for KEEPERS when she is older :)" - Parent, 7 yr old

"Scarlett is loving camp! Thank you to you and the other teachers for your hard work!" - Parent, 8 yr old
