For information about Kindergarten Kickstart camps, which are available only for students entering CDS Kindergarten in Fall 2020, please see this page.

Session I: June 22 – July 10

Fort CDS

Imagine spending summer in your own fort. Campers will brave the playground and build their own forts. They will learn about the natural environment around them as well as use teamwork to problem solve common fort management issues.

CDS Jetsetters

With an eye to the sky and an appreciation for adventure, our jetsetters are set to take on the globe this summer. Through food, geography, introductions to new cultures, and sports from around the world, our CDS Jetsetters will have a great summer for sure. 

Session II: July 20 – August 7

CDS Time Travelers

Campers will travel across the dimension of time to discover sports, customs, and art from ancient civilizations and preview what may arise in our future.

Mini Cities

Campers will learn about what cities are made of and make their own! They’ll build miniature buildings and also create their own camp governments, form businesses, and start their own sports teams.
