At Ridgefield Academy, we believe summer is a time for children to explore, discover, and engage in activities that bring them joy. Whether it is creating through art, learning to code or honing skills in a particular sport, RA offers an enriching summer experience for every child’s imagination. Programs are tailored to children aged 2 to 14 and take place on RA’s spectacular 42-acre campus. RA’s summer programs are open to the public, begin on June 17 and run for six weeks.
Camp Landmark’s 2s camp is comprised of half day programs that are sure to bring smiles to all little faces.
