CML camps provide educational enrichment opportunities disguised as PLAY during school breaks: Spring Break Camp, Summer Camp, Turkey Time Camp and Winter Wonderland Camp! Children ages 3 – 10 engage in developmentally appropriate, hands-on activities that include science, engineering, math, literacy and the arts and center around fun weekly themes. Children also spend time exploring in the CML interactives, where, through PLAY, they enhance their communication, problem solving and creativity skills. CML campers forge friendships as they work on collaborative projects and test their strengths as they tackle fun mental and physical challenges. Every day of camp delivers a set of unique experiences that keep children learning through PLAY!
Cancellations made two weeks or more prior to the first day of camp are eligible for a CML credit. Any cancellation after this time will result in a loss of the entire amount paid. As a nonprofit, these costs have been allocated towards materials and staffing for the program. Please keep in mind as long as there is availability, you may switch programs up to one week prior to the beginning of the originally registered program. CML Credit may be applied for on-site CML activities including programs, admissions and memberships.
Full Day Campers: Lunch
CML provides mid-morning and late-afternoon snacks. Full Day Campers must bring a lunch that is NUT FREE (no peanuts or tree nuts). Acceptable peanut butter substitutions include soybutter and Sunbutter. Campers are also welcome to order a customized lunch, delivered for free, from Food for Thought. No time to prepare and pack a delicious lunch for your camper? Food for Thought is the convenient solution. Create an account and pick what healthy food items your child enjoyed. Schedule and pay via a simple online system. Then, Food for Thought freshly prepares the lunch and delivers to CML at the designated lunch time.
All CML Camp Counselors receive training in positive behavior management techniques, Darkness to Light Child Sexual Abuse Prevention and First Aid/CPR.
