Raised Jay Summer Camps

For kids, a summer week can last so much longer than the days it encompasses. Every moment of a Raised Jay camp will stay with your son or daughter forever. From the first paddle of a kayak to the 18th hole, your Raised Jayer will experience hiking, ice skating, surfing, golf, kayaking, fishing, tie-dye, outdoor survival skills and, most importantly, the simple, free feeling of being a careless kid in the summer. These camps might last from Monday to Friday, but the moments only grow larger every day thereafter.

Not only will your kids be Raised Right, but they'll also be Fed Right, as a full buffet with a wide variety of options for even the pickiest of eaters will be on display each day for lunch. Healthy snacks, in the form of fruit or granola bars, will also be available in the morning and afternoon.

In order to be eligible for Raised Jay camps, children must be between the ages of 6 and 14.

Each session is five days long (Monday to Friday) from 9am to 4pm and limited to 20 campers.
