About Our Camp
We offer a wonderful summer program which runs for 7 weeks. Our program is for children ages 2-6. Every group has its own cheer. From Guppies to Buffalos, our grounds are filled with camp spirit. We are specialists in working with young children so everything we do is custom-geared for this age group!
Camp is an experience that lives within you for the rest of your life. Friendships, skills, songs and cheers will never be forgotten. Camp provides opportunities children need to try new things, to gain confidence from their successes, to learn resilience, to explore and just simply, to play!
Founded in 1957, our camp has touched the lives of thousands of children. We provide a safe, small setting where your child will not get lost in the crowd.
We offer a variety of choices:
- AM (9-11:45) which includes daily swim, playground and alternating specials of Music, Sports, Drama and Art.
- 9-1 which includes our AM program plus Lunch and an additional activity like Sports, Music or Art.
- 9-2 which includes our AM program, Lunch, an additional activity and a second Swim.
Camp includes many activities. We have two in-ground heated pools. We have a fabulous swim program which uses the American Red Cross certification. Over the years, many children have learned to swim here and have earned Beginner and Advanced Beginner swim cards.
Our Sports include soccer, whiffle ball, kickball, relay races, etc. and the development of lots of physical skills.
Our Music Program will leave you singing along to some of our fun camp music for the rest of your life. The music at our final Round-Up includes themes like Disney, Rock-N-Roll and Broadway.
Arts & Crafts will be an age-appropriate variety of hand-made beautiful projects.
Our 4, 5 and 6 year olds will participate in a group “play.” We will develop our dramatic abilities and have fun too! Parents are invited to our performances!
We participate in many special activities. Here are just some of the special events of our summer:
- Field Day

Camp is a wonderful part of our year! Many of us have built friendships and skills that will last a lifetime. The spirit and enthusiasm of these 7 weeks at camp brighten each day!
Barbara Schori is the Director of the Summer Program as well as our school. Barbara and her family have owned and run RSCS for 60 years!
During our Summer Program, a teacher heads each group with college students assisting them. We also have specialized staff in the areas of Arts & Crafts, Sports and Swimming. Our swim program is headed by our Water Safety Instructors with lifeguards and your child’s counselors working closely together.
Our counselor to camper ratio is:
- 2s and 3s – 1:3
- 4s – 1:4
- 5s and 6s – 1:5
We provide a mid-morning snack each day. We serve lunch to those campers who stay until 1 or 2pm. We are a nut free facility.
SPECIAL DIETARY NEEDS
We understand that there may be special dietary needs or allergies, in which case a parent will be required to supply their child’s snack or lunch each day.
We trust that you, as parents, will keep us fully informed of your child’s medical conditions, allergies and any concerns that you have in order to position us to properly safeguard your child. An Allergy List is posted in each classroom for the safety of your child. We are a nut-free facility.
We are not permitted by law to administer any medication to your child, except Epinephrine and Benadryl in a dire emergency. We require specific written instructions from your doctor to administer these medications.
Please label all of your child’s clothing. A complete change of clothes (shirt, shorts, underwear, socks) is needed for our younger campers at the start of camp. Please note that we only allow sneakers or rubber-soled shoes on our playground.
