The building is shared with a handful of other education-based companies such as Best Academy. When arriving to the camp, please use the door that faces Burke Lake Road (the side without the stairs leading to the door). There will be a sign out front for Summer Cove.

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.
