Important Notice Regarding Coronavirus

We are saddened to announce that due to the rapid progression of the coronavirus disease, PALS will not be in session this summer, 2020.

This was a difficult decision, but most important was to protect the health and well being of our campers and staff. We appreciate your understanding. Please be assured that PALS will return with plenty of vitality and playfulness in the summer of 2021. In the meantime, please take care and stay safe.


Giving local kids a summertime experience with lifetime benefits

PALS is a free summer camp for 400 children ages 8-14 whose family incomes are at or below federal poverty guidelines. The camp is structured around four character pillars: respect, responsibility, caring, and courage. Curriculum activities include STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), computer programming, financial literacy, dance, art, videography, photography, judo, nutrition, swimming, career development, service learning, and select special events. Campers receive breakfast and lunch and are bused from 2 locations by Lafayette School Corporation.
