Family Success and Impact Stories | Our spring series 2022- President and CEO, Karen Hughes has a special message for you.
We offer comprehensive, school-age programming for children in Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade.
When school is out and both parents are working, Camp Vogel provides a safe, nurturing environment for children who might not have an appropriate place to gather.
For the summer months, Camp Vogel offers enrichment and sports activities, swimming lessons, arts and crafts, S.T.E.A.M. programs, Technology Clinics, dance classes, a chess program, yoga lessons, social/emotional skill building, field trips, and so much more!
In addition to fun activities, exercise, and intellectual stimulation, the children attending Summer Camp also receive a healthy breakfast, lunch, and a snack.
Camp Vogel gives our children the chance to overlay positive memories upon negative ones and just be kids.

For children who have been through traumatic experiences (such as homelessness), big changes are especially challenging.
In our Kinder Camp program, preschoolers learn all about “big school” and get to practice activities that might be new to them, like going through a cafeteria lunch line or carrying a backpack. Our teachers ensure the kids are academically prepared for their first day of Kindergarten. The kids also attend daily swimming lessons with the older children.
