Camp Meeting Locations

SWCC offers 3-4 different camps each day during the school year and as many as 16 per week during the summer. Our camps meet in many different locations inside Southwest Community Center and outside in Gabriel Park. Please check your summer camp parent email for any changes to the location of Drop-Off and Pick-Up for each camp.


  • BRING YOUR ID: When picking-up your camper for camp, YOU MUST SHOW PHOTO ID EVERY DAY and sign your child in/out each day. This will ensure the safety of your camper & allow staff the time to share information about your camper & camp with you.
