(Coming Soon!)

Weekly Schedule / Partnering with our Brandon Site

Breakfast will be served at 8:30 am, and we ask that children arrive at summer camp no later than 9:00 (unless you make arrangements in advance).  Some field trip schedules may require children to arrive earlier.

Weekly schedule will be added when the summer camp field trip schedule is finalized in late March / early April.


** We will partner with our sister site, First Discoveries Academy, in Brandon/Valrico:
  • Our Brandon school will meet up with us for most major field trips, including Clearwater Marine Aquarium and the Florida Aquarium.
  • A few of our field trips will take us out to the Brandon area, so we will have a few opportunities to have a picnic lunch at our sister site.  They have a huge playground with farm animals, so visiting them is always so much fun!

Register your child today for a fun-filled summer!
