Summer Camp

The New Horizon Summer Camp is a wonderful space for children to enjoy the summer days with a variety of fun activities in a safe environment. Every day is filled with fun, learning, and friendship through our daily sessions of Camp Huddle, Motion Commotion, STEMtastic, Inside the Garden & Outside Art, and Arabic Excursions.

Intertwined in the camp experience are opportunities to enjoy water days, field trips, and Friday Jamborees.

  • Sparrow Scouts (entering PK and K)
  • Raccoon Rangers (entering Grade 1 and 2)
