Our Summer Camp or SCamp program is a full-day program for children who have completed kindergarten through fifth grade. The program runs ten weeks during the summer months; families may sign up for one to ten weeks of care, two or more days per week. The first and last weeks of camp are reserved for children who are attending at least two other weeks of camp. Registration begins in March.

SCamp is a safe, fun, and educational home-away-from home where kids spend time with their peers as they explore local attractions, do themed exploration activities at the center, and go to the pool, library, and local parks. The teacher-to-child ratio for most activities is 1:10. Children are transported in Gretchen’s House vehicles and the Ann Arbor City buses.

Important Details:

  • A $100 non-refundable deposit is required with registration. This will be applied toward subsequent SCamp tuition.

  • Confirmation of requested dates will be available by April 26th for all applications turned in by April 12th. (Later registrations will be made and confirmed on a space available basis.)
