Experience Summer Camp at The Sunshine House!

Summer Day Camp for Kids Near Me


Just think. A summer full of adventures, thrilling field trips, unique activities, and new friends! That’s The Quest Summer Camp at The Sunshine House!

Our popular field trips are a summer highlight, with your child participating in something new each week. Water parks, zoos, planetariums, amusement parks, museums, stadium tours, hiking, and the list goes on. And those are just the field trips. Camp includes so much more!

Each week is a new quest with a different theme, with 3 special premier weeks:

  1. Quest for the Artist Within: Art is more than just drawing! Your child will learn various techniques and create their own masterpieces. Projects include creating a cardboard loom, masking tape murals, Mondrian stained glass art, and our favorite — drawing with scissors like Henri Matisse!
  2. Quest for Engineering Greatness: STEM Studio has been extended to 2 weeks! Projects include using force and motion to construct a Ferris Wheel, creating a device to clean the environment and save animals, inventing a filter to clean dirty water, waterproofing a roof, and so much more!
  3. Quest for Growing a Better Community: What’s a greenhouse biome? You’ll find out when your camper creates theirs! Campers will create their own garden. When the harvest arrives, your learner will experience philanthropy and giving-back first-hand.

Other themed weeks* include:

  • Greatness (world records/challenges)
  • Flight (making things that fly/looking at flight)
  • The Stars (space travel/all things planetary)
  • Deliciousness (cooking/chef competition)
  • The Deep (marine life/under sea travel)
  • Fantasy Adventures (literary worlds)
  • Mad Science (science experiments)
  • Travel through Time (future and past worlds)
  • Animal Oddities (animals/strange creatures)
  • Sports Domination (sports/games)
  • Brand New Worlds (interesting places on earth)

* Themes vary by school. Ask your Director for the specific theme weeks your school is offering.
