About Us

 

Our Philosophy

As the number of working families continues to rise, many families struggle to balance their home life with other obligations. Due to this unfortunate reality in today’s society, Camp Innovation has created wonderful programs to help families regain some of their precious home time. Through efficient use of after school and summer programs, families will have more quality time to spend fostering their home lives. 

At Camp Innovation, we understand that the education and social development of each child depends on a collaborative effort. Thus, we partner with each student, their school, and their families to ensure the student’s success. We accomplish this goal through quality extended day and extended year programs that enhance social and educational experiences. 

With over 20 years of combined experience in education and childcare, Camp Innovation, Inc. is committed to providing a fun and educational learning experience in a safe environment. Camp Innovation gives children premiere learning opportunities rich in diversity and social interaction while allowing children the freedom to enjoy the fun of childhood. 

With after school regulation and rules changing frequently, Camp Innovation also check with the state to ensure all guidelines are being followed. 

 

Benefits for You

Camp Innovation enhances the educational quality and financial income of your school. Our camp is there when the regular school days and school years end. We understand that although each school may have a different personality, they all share the same goal of providing a quality education that benefits the students, their families, and their teachers. Camp Innovation can assist with this goal by supplementing the daily lessons learned at school in a way that excites and motivates students. 

After school programs face the special challenge of keeping students focused and energized after a long and tiresome day of classes. Camp innovation employs undergraduate and graduate students who bring energy to maximize the after school experience for every child. When the last school bell rings our staff is revved up and ready to go with homework, ABC’s (Activity Based Classes), and outdoor activities. Our well-rounded and energetic camp counselors strike a balance between studies and fun. The counselors assist each child with completing their homework and ensure that each child also has time for fun activities.
