Summer Camp


The Linnton Community Center summer camp is broken up into weekly themes. However, camp is based on over-arching themes that are present in activities throughout the summer. We focus on STEAM education, environmental stewardship, positive action, nutrition, community building, gardening, and Fun!

Each day we take a field trip to natural spaces, parks, local attractions and pools. Much of the summer is spent hiking, swimming, playing, fishing and building friendships.


Things to consider:

We provide snacks and supervised fun activities, but here are a few things that your children should bring with them.

  • Bring a sack lunch and water bottle.
  • Wear closed toe shoes.
  • Sunscreen or other methods of sun protection are highly recommended.
  • A towel and change of clothes is also a good idea.
  • Pack swim wear and a lifejacket (if needed) on pool days.

Please leave electronic devices and other valuables at home!
