Info about summer camp 2024 coming soon!

Lesley Ellis Summer Camp provides new experiences, helps your child stay in touch with friends, make new friends and participate in fun and unique programming. We can’t wait to welcome our incredible staff dedicated to providing a stimulating and fun summer camp for your children. We have developed a camp that is both fun and educational; one that is age appropriate and allows them to think from new perspectives.
