• Poekie Nook summer camps are Mon-Fri, 10am to 4pm. Free drop-in before and after camp (we’re open for drop-in 9am-5pm).
• We provide a light morning and afternoon snack (gluten free available). Please bring a lunch.
• Please note: Take advantage of early bird savings. Early registration helps us provide optimum staff/student ratios.

We’re in the process of creating an online reservation system, but if you’d like to secure a spot now, please use our old-fashioned process by calling us with your credit card (and contact) information for the deposit. Thank you for your patience!

House Building (Three camps)

Younger children (age 6-7) will make small and sweet apartments, while older ones will build complete houses. Everyone loves this camp, so sign up now.

Poekie Theatre
Acting, Crafting, and Imagination all in one week! We’ll write the script together, make the set, props and costumes and take our Poekies on a trip into an imaginary world. The performance will be on Friday at 3pm.
Sophia is a graduate of AMDA in NYC and loves sharing her theatre experience to create truly memorable times for both Poekies and kids.
