Summer camp

June 28-August 20

Half sessions available!

HPNC offers a full-day summer camp filled with a large variety of activities, athletics, adventure, and friendship that engage the whole child. We emphasize physical exercise through organized sports (soccer, basketball, gymnastics) and outdoor play.

We focus the kids’ attention on healthy nutrition and their environment through cooking and gardening and foster their engagement with the city through weekly outings. We emphasize inclusiveness and attract a diverse set of kids from different cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. At HPNC’s summer camp, kids are nurtured, engaged, active and make friends with children they may not otherwise meet.
