Some sad news about our camps
Dear camp families,
This is a little hard for me to type: We started offering track out and summer camps 2 years ago as a way to help us make it through covid. Though the camps have been a blast, we've actually spent more money than we made on them (...I know!). So sadly, we've made the difficult decision to not offer camps after our already-booked summer weeks (ending August 25th).
We kept camps going for this long because I absolutely love what we've been able to do with them, and I really really wanted it to succeed! Unfortunately, I’ve learned that providing the kind of hands-on STEM camps we have offered, with great staff, at the ratios we're comfortable with, is just not financially viable for us.
I want to give a huge shout out to all of our phenomenal camp staff over the last 2 years. They've engaged almost 2,000 campers(!) in so many wonderful ways, sparking joy, wonder, and curiosity about the world around them.
The silver lining of this change is that we're going to suddenly have WAY more time to focus on other areas of Over The Moon. And we've been BURSTING with ideas that we just haven’t had time for! So, after we wrap up camp and take a deep breath, be on the lookout for lots of changes and great new programs around here.
Some of the things we’ll be thinking about are: enhancing the play space, adding more STEM events and activities, our field trips (both here and in-school), and meet ups and play dates. If there's anything specific you'd love us to start doing, please reply and let me know!
I know this news will be as disappointing to many of you as it is to me. But there are lots of great camps in the area, and you can check out our Big List Of Camps
We will miss all of the campers and their energy, so please don’t be strangers - stop by and say ‘hi’ any time!
All the best,
Benjie and the entire Over The Moon Team
My 8-year old son LOVES this camp. Sometimes we arrive a tad early and he's peeking through the window excitedly until they open the doors :) He's attended the "Glorious Goop" camp and "Science Adventures" and always comes home something he's proud of making. He tells me stories about how much fun he had with this friends and the counselors as well. Great camp! - He'll be back :)
My daughter attended a week of summer camp at Over the Moon, and had an absolute blast! She loved the play space, and the variety of fun, STEM-based activities each day. The instructors/counselors that I interacted with were all pleasant, organized and seemingly beloved by the children they worked with. Highly recommend.
We enrolled our Kindergartener at Over The Moon for his first ever track out camp. It was AMAZING. So organized and well done, great communication, and he had the best time. We will definitely be back for more camps and open play!
I can't say enough about how fabulous this camp is! My 7yo son has done 3 different camps, all different themes, and LOVED every one of them! This is by far the most quality education and fun we've experienced at a camp. He comes home with very impressive things he's made from art (which he usually hates, but quite enjoyed here!) [...] It's also a nice mix of engaged learning, hands on activities, outside time, and indoor play in their amazing interactive play space. [...]
