MSP offers summer camp for students in Preschool & Kindergarten.  Themes alternate from week to week and include such creative and enriching topics as cooking, art, technology, and science.  Students may attend all summer or pick and choose weeks.  *Those enrolled in MSP Toddler and Entry classes may choose to go year round.

In addition to the 8 AM to 11:30 PM camp time, there is also early morning and afternoon (until 5:30pm) Extended Day for Preschool-Kindergarten aged children.

Non-MSP students are invited to attend camps.  *Please note, students not currently enrolled in MSP must be at least 4 years of age to enroll in camp and are required to schedule a child visit before registering for summer camps.  Call (850) 469-8138 or click here to schedule.
