Aaah, summer - that long anticipated stretch of lazy, lingering days, free of responsibility and rife with possibility. It’s a time to hunt for insects, master handstands, practice swimming strokes, conquer trees, explore nooks and crannies, and make new friends.

For children enrolled in elementary school, Olympic View Friends offers an exciting “summer camp” program built around weekly themes and many fun-filled trips to community hot spots. 

The weekly themes are designed to help our school agers experience and learn about art, sports, games and technology; as well as academic subjects such as language arts, math, science and social studies.

Our Camp program is a great way to help your child learn during the Summer months, so they are ready & prepared when they return to school in September.
