Welcome to A Sabot Summer!

A Sabot Summer is divided into week-long, themed morning camps, and afternoon childcare, featuring relaxed, open-ended, and varied experiences, for children ages 3 to 9.

Each week-long camp offering provides children with engaging opportunities for exploring and developing skills, sparking new ideas and interests, and fostering imagination and enthusiasm for the world around them.

Our afternoon program, for children ages 3 to 9, is tailored to meet the needs of parents who need continuity in child care for summer months. Families can enroll for the entire summer, June 19 through August 18, (note, we will be closed the week of July 3 - 7), or for any number and combination of weeks.

Take advantage of our package special through March 15, 2017. Register one child for six or more weeks of full day camp and save $30 per week. Save $45 per week per child if you register two or more.
