SPECIAL NOTE: Some of our Summer Vacation Cartoon Camp and Summer Vacation Mini Camp sessions are full.

As you may know, we allow a maximum of 30 campers per weekly session - 15 boys and girls ages 10 and under and 15 boys and girls ages 11 to 15.

If you're thinking about camp, it might be time to start dialing while you're thinking and let us know what you are thinking about!

Hopefully we'll still have a space available for the weeks you wish to have your camper attend.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

See You In The Funny Papers!
