Summer Day Camps

At Montavilla Community Center, summer brings a season of creativity, excitement, and most of all FUN! Whether indoors or out, camps at Montavilla Community Center are fast-paced and kid-centered. Age-appropriate programs provide mental stimulation and physical outlets at just the right level for your child. Don't forget to check out our Early Risers & Extended Care programs for families of school aged campers that need to drop-off before 9am or stay on site past 5pm.

Camp Adventures

For age 3-5

A great segue to preschool for students preparing to start school next fall AND a great social opportunity for young kids to interact with campers their age over the summer months! Camp Adventures run Monday-Friday and is broken into two parts during the day: morning and afternoon camp sessions. Enroll in one or both parts of the day depending on your child's needs.  Students remain indoors and in their class room during morning session while the afternoon session will include some time outdoors in the park. Children enrolled for a full day (both morning & afternoon sessions on the same day) must bring a lunch and will be supervised during the 30 minutes between morning and afternoon camp.

Daily Adventures

For children entering 1-4 grade

Daily Adventures allows our younger grade school campers to enjoy a focus on more in-depth activities and hands-on projects. Spend the day creating masterpieces, playing games, developing friendships, and enjoying the fresh air & sunshine out in the park. Daily Adventure campers will swim in Montavilla’s outdoor pool most Tuesday & Thursday afternoons.  Campers will be dropped off inside the community center for the morning sessions and will move outside by about 10am each day, rain or shine.  Mid-day transitions and afternoon pick-up's will take place outside in the park.
