Summer at the Elms

It’s time to discover what Summer at the Elms is all about! We’re excited to kick off Summer Camp 2019 in June! As we begin the new season, we would like to greet all of our new summer families and welcome back our returning Panther families! As Summer at the Elms grows, we are excited to meet the interests of our campers with new themes and programming. Our camp staff can’t wait to embark on a summer learning journey with your camper that includes: visual and performing arts, athletics, mathematics, science adventures and more. We are all looking forward to another great Summer at the Elms season.

There are a number of great reasons to attend Summer at the Elms Camp. Campers grow as individuals, gaining independence and learning responsibility. They make new friends and develop the essential skills of teamwork and cooperation. Our younger camps are co-ed where campers sing songs, dance, play games and spend time exploring the Elms 33 acre campus.

Our staff is experienced, and each member holds an Ohio teaching license. Our teen counselors are incredible role models and most are current Upper School students. Each camp staff member genuinely cares about the individual development of our campers and will help them to learn, grow and thrive in our Elms community.

Registration for Summer at the Elms is now open! Take a look at our 2019 brochure to see the variety of experiences we offer. Questions?
