Classes & Camps

Classes & Camps

For All Ages and Interests.

More than 130 classes for adults, children, and parent/child pairs are offered year-round, and more than 30 engaging summer camps for children ages 4 to 14 are offered each summer. Camps vary from week-long to 4-day, 2-day and 1-day camps and run from mid-June through mid-August.

Take an interactive tour of our new Covenant Learning Center here!

*Summer camps have been canceled for 2020 due to the COVID-19 public health crisis. We will be offering classes beginning in August and day camp options on Saturdays this fall.
