SUMMER CAMP 2024
Enrollment for Summer 2024 begins in March. Watch this space!
Spend your summer having outdoor adventures, saving the universe, defeating dark wizards, creating artistic masterpieces, searching for buried treasure, completing mythological quests, conducting crazy and cool science experiments, playing sports AND carnival, and making new friends! With a mix of activity blocks, unstructured supervised play, daily swimming in an indoor pool, and weekly field trips, adventures abound for school-age children at the theme-based Honey Creek Summer Camp.
We offer something for everyone, whether you come for a day, a week, or the entire summer. Our flexible scheduling, themed weeks, and specialty camps help you customize your summer to fill your child’s days with FUN.
Follow us on FaceBook for weekly updates about field trips, staffing, and other fun news!
Due to the overwhelming waitlist last year (300+ at one point) we have put a cancellation fee in place of $10/day for cancellations prior to the June 1st deadline to cancel; so please take some care in solidifying your summer schedules before registering. You will still be able to cancel dates before June 1st, but there will now be a small fee. Dates may NOT be cancelled after June 1st, but you may still switch them for the $10/switch fee.
We look forward to seeing you all this summer! In the meantime, please check out last year's themes and schedules to get an idea of what a typical day and week might look like for any given theme.
Questions are best answered via email at email@example.com.
What's Different About Honey Creek's Summer Camp?
Extended Day Care from 8AM-6PM, with no extra fees for before and after care.
Flexible Scheduling, because real life is flexible. For a slight fee, you can switch days; and you can sign up for 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 days per week.
Multi-age, thematic programs. Honey Creek Summer Camp is hands-on experience, through which campers actively create, play, and learn.
For campers who will return to Honey Creek for the regular school year, the camp is an opportunity to become comfortable with the school’s culture and layout.
We are a licensed child care facility so we provide a SAFE, stimulating, and satisfying summer camp experience.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
Each week of camp has a unique theme. Campers may sign up for the entire summer, for their favorite weeks, or for a regularly scheduled drop in (for example, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). Please contact us to arrange a schedule that best fits your needs. Older campers are eligible for the Counselor-in-Training program.
All Day Child Care
Camp operates from 8:00AM – 6:00PM
In addition to daily enrichment activities, water play, and “Me Time,” campers will enjoy a variety of clubs and field trips throughout the summer. The first hour of each day is flex time, to accommodate all families’ morning schedules. (There are no extra fees for these extended care hours.) Themed group activities begin at 9:30 A.M. Then, campers have lunch, recess, “Me Time,” and water play. An afternoon snack and a second block of theme activities finish the day.
Honey Creek is thrilled to return to our permanent summer camp location within the High Point School on the WISD (Washtenaw Intermediate School District) campus in Ann Arbor on South Wagner Road between Liberty and Scio Church Roads.
Our newly renovated location features:
Climate Controlled Building
Updated and ADA compliant Playground
Summer campers have two snacks and a lunch every day. A morning snack should be brought from home. For lunch, parents have the option to pack a bag lunch or to purchase hot lunch, provided by Dexter Food Services.
We provide a nutritious afternoon snack.
Parents/guardians are responsible for transportation to and from camp. Bus transportation is provided for all field trips.
All Counselors are First Aid / CPR certified and are experienced in working with children in integrated, multi-age programs. The Counselor: Camper ratio is approximately 1:10.
