The Camp @ Cleveland Park Club returns for its fifth summer in 2018. Weekly sessions are available from June 18 to August 10.
The Camp @ Cleveland Park Club offers a low-key, warm, and welcoming setting for campers, CIT's and counselors. This summer program combines old-fashioned, self-directed play with organized, hands-on activities.
The camp is intentionally small, with a maximum of 40 campers, CIT's and counselors per week. Almost all activities take place outdoors. The Club has an expansive porch, sandbox, two-level fort and grassy lawn.
Fun and educational projects vary with each week's theme. Campers may enjoy daily free swim in the Club's pool and/or participate in swim instruction. Formal swim instruction requires a separate registration and additional fee/s.
