Unique Camps for a Unique Age

 Middle school is a time of discovery, exploration, and finding your strengths. Summer Cove aims to create a safe space that nurtures individuals to grow creatively and learn who they are and can become. Our camps are truly designed with them in mind. 

Let them Explore

Summer Cove offers a variety of camps that are outside the typical choices for middle school activities. Our goal is to create unique opportunities for young minds to explore skills that they have not attempted before. We strive to provide an environment that encourages self-discovery and growth: a place where they are not afraid to try something new.

The Story Behind the Dragonfly

I get a lot of questions about the meaning of the dragonfly on the logo, so I wanted to share the significance behind it: Back in 2010, my oldest sister, Katie, was in a car accident and unfortunately she passed away. After her accident, we planted a tree off of Burke Lake Road in her honor. Dozens of dragonflies swarmed the tree during the first year, and my family quickly developed a strong connection with the winged insect. We each have dragonfly tattoos, dragonfly car decals, dragonfly everything. There is not a day that goes by that I do not catch myself thinking about her smile or her contagious laughter. I miss her everyday and I always strive to live my life to the fullest because of her. So, naturally when I got the idea to create my own summer camp, I thought that it would be a good way to continue to honor her name. That's why the dragonfly is proudly placed next to the Summer Cove name.
