As you may have heard already, Nokomis and Neeta Schools are receiving many important renovations this summer.  As a result, we have had to modify some aspects of our Summer Camp program to meet the needs of the planned renovations. It is important to note that these changes are only applicable for our camp program for children entering grades 1-8, NOT for our Preschool Camp or Five-Year-Old Swim programs. We anticipate very little to no changes to those two programs.

We want to take this time to outline some of the biggest changes.

For children entering grades 1-4:
     • Camp will be held in Neeta School’s All-Purpose Room (APR)
           - Campers will enter and park their bikes on the side of the school
     • Swimming will be held at Beach #1

For children entering grades 5-8:
     • Swimming will be held at Area #2
     • Canoeing will be held at Area #5

Camp will be held from Monday, July 2 – Friday, July 27, 2018 (with no camp on Wed., July 4) from 8:30 am – 1:30 pm.

Camp Schedules will become on available on the Colony website as soon as they are finalized.

Questions can be directed to Angela McCrum at a.t.mccrum@gmail.com.
