Summer Camp (K-6)
Educational Playcare’s all-inclusive summer camp program is more than just a camp! With daily team building activities and collaborative week-long projects, our campers feel more like family! Unlike the academic school year, your school-age child won’t spend the summer in a “race-to-the-top.” Our summer camp focuses on the process of each activity, not just the product.
Our campers are able to explore their individual interests at their own pace while experiencing a pure camp experience that is as memorable, diverse and rewarding as we remember ours to be. Building friendships, developing a love of learning and having fun are the important values we emphasize, and with weekly field trips and exciting activities, our campers have the time of their lives!
A typical day consists of a balance between structured team activities with a focus on fun and time for campers to explore their own interests. Each week’s activities include opportunities to spark campers’ curiosity in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and/or math (commonly known as STEM). Campers experience the value of perseverance and the pride of success while being challenged in a nurturing and fun-filled environment!
Our camp lunch and snack menus are specially designed to please school-age kids, and once a week we have a barbecue lunch with all the burgers and dogs you can eat!
Our dedicated counselors have many years of experience working with children of all ages and have been with our camp program for many years. Several of them have been with our camp program since its introduction!
The Summer Camp Program is available for children entering Kindergarten through 6th grade.

Any concern about a child care center we had has become a distant memory thanks to EPC.
My daughter loves go to EPC every day! It’s a great feeling knowing that she is being taken care of.
EPC is an amazing child care center! The teachers and directors are so compassionate and truly care.
