Summer Program

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, Honey Creek has canceled its 2020 Summer Camp programming.  We are heartbroken.  We wish you well and hope to see you again in 2021.

Spend your summer having outdoor adventures, saving the universe, defeating dark wizards, creating artistic masterpieces, searching for buried treasure, completing mythological quests, conducting crazy and cool science experiments, playing sports AND carnival, and making new friends!  With a mix of activity blocks, unstructured supervised play, daily swimming in an indoor pool, and weekly field trips, adventures abound for school-age children at the theme-based Honey Creek Summer Camp.

Also, check out our selection of SPECIALTY CAMPS for those looking to explore their favorite topics on a deeper level!

We offer something for everyone, whether you come for a day, a week, or the entire summer. Our flexible scheduling, themed weeks, and specialty camps help you customize your summer to fill your child’s days with FUN.
Enjoy our short video which tries to sum up 10-weeks of summer fun in less than 2 minutes:)

What’s different about Honey Creek’s Summer Camp?

  • Extended Day Care from 8am-6pm, with no extra fees for before and after care.
  • Flexible Scheduling, because real life is flexible. For a slight fee, you can switch days; and you can sign up for 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 days per week.
  • Multi-age, thematic programs. Honey Creek Summer Camp is hands-on experience, through which campers actively create, play, and learn.
  • For campers who will return to Honey Creek for the regular school year, the camp is an opportunity to become comfortable with the school’s culture and layout.
  • SPECIALTY CAMPS with the option for before and after care in our regular day camp.
  • We are a licensed child care facility so we provide a SAFE, stimulating, and satisfying summer camp experience.
See the poster for all the details!
  • IMPORTANT:  This summer’s camp will be held at our temporary location at 235 Spencer Lane in Ypsilanti while the Wagner Road building is under construction.
  • Enrollment will again be ONLINE:
