REGISTRATION OPENS: February 1st, 2024

Spend your best summer at Bixby!

Our Bixby Summer Camp is a play-based camp that centers around creativity and lots of outdoor play. This year we will also be introducing theme based camp programming that will give kids new experiences on top of outdoor exploration.

Bixby Summer is open for campers entering grades K-6 and current preschool families.  Set on our beautiful 3-acre campus, Bixby Summer provides campers with a caring, safe environment to play and explore interests with the support of trained, mature counselors and programmers.

We will also be providing opportunities for campers to engage with local partners as they learn everything from environmental health to fantasy role-play. We believe that open-ended play and a little bit of structured programming gives children the space and time to make meaningful connections and develop lasting friendships.

Preschool summer camp is only open to our current Bixby families. This decision came after evaluating staffing, current enrollment, and consistency of care for our year-round families.
