Summer Camps

Peabody Summer Camp

Peabody Summer Camp is a two-week long adventure hosted by Miss Kim and her experienced staff. Each day brings on new fun, excitement, challenge and exploration! This year we will be going on a safari at the Richmond Zoo, working as a team at Laser Tag, swimming at Lake Sherando and Fry’s Spring Beach Club, exploring the mystery of the Endless Caverns, plus much more! Peabody Summer camp is a great way for our children to cooperate with campers of different ages, explore their own interests, take new healthy risks, and start their summers off with two weeks of fun!

Raspberry Pi Camp

A Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer that can be used in electronics projects and for many of the things that your desktop PC or Mac does – like spreadsheets, word processing, browsing the internet, and playing games.
