WELCOME!

to First Presbyterian Day School’s summer camp program. Through our summer programs, we strive to inspire young athletes, scholars, and artists in a faith-based, Christ-centered environment. We have camps for all ages and interests. Please review the enclosed information and choose the camp that best suits your child. In addition to summer camps, we also offer a Summer Day Care program.

More information about our Day Care program can be found on the back page of this book. Once you make your camp selections, please visit our website to register online. Please note that camps are filled on a first come, first serve basis and spaces are limited.
