  • Q. Do you offer lunch?

    A hot lunch and a sandwich and salad buffet is included in the tuition for all camps. Campers may bring their own lunch if desired but the cost of camp would remain the original price. In addition, we are a "nut-aware" camp, and work with families when children have specific allergic conditions.

  • Q. Do you provide Aftercare?

    Campers who cannot be picked up at the end of their camp may stay for extended supervision for an additional charge. Aftercare provides a variety of choices for campers during their afternoon time. Socializing on the playground, participating in sports activities in the gym or on the basketball courts, or getting creative with various craft projects are some of the many things available to campers. At Camp Webb’s Aftercare, children can form new friendships and strengthen old ones during structured downtime; the groups are organized by grade.
    Aftercare is offered on a weekly or daily basis. The hours are from 2:15 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Campers must be rising kindergartners or older. Cost: Daily $20 or Weekly $50 (3 days or more).  Note: We cannot pro-rate or give refunds with this program.
  • Q. What is the Adventure Camp's Mission Statement?
