A Program of Schools for Children

Summer Camp 2024

Welcome to summer camp 2024!

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.

The camp is staffed by an administrative team composed of LES staff, camp nurse, activity specialists, senior counselors, junior counselors, and CIT’s. Each team member is invested in working together to provide a fun and safe camp experience for all of our campers.

  • There are three non-camp days this summer, Wednesday, June 19th, Thursday, July 4th, and Friday, July 5th.  Both weeks will be short.
  • Summer camp runs for 9 weeks from June 10, 2024, through August 9, 2024. The Lesley Ellis Summer Camp is designed around popular themes.
