Join us for a summer of fun!

Cecil Dancenter’s Camp is the place to be for Summer Fun!  We have been committed to providing girls with action packed summers for over twenty years.  Our flexible schedule will allow your daughter to enjoy just one day, one week or the entire summer in a safe, positive, and nurturing environment.

With two spacious areas, we’re able to provide age appropriate crafts and activities to meet the needs of campers ages five to thirteen. Our qualified staff will recognize the uniqueness of individuals and strengthen the social interaction among friends.  We offer rotating play centers each week to keep the girls creativity blossoming during free time - ice cream shop, dress up clothes, restaurant, florist, pizza shop, bowling, office, grocery store, animal hospital, baby nursery, & more! We have plenty of opportunities for our girls to explore their inner artist with shelves of art supplies. Your child deserves a warm atmosphere where laughter and fun combine with recreation and relaxation to provide lasting memories- that’s what Cecil Dancenter offers.

Our camp is open from June 12 through September 1 with hours from 7:00am until 5:45pm. 


There is a $30 non-refundable registration fee due per family. Families with 2 or more children attending our summer camp are entitled to a 10% tuition discount.

WEEKLY: Tuition is $150 per week. There is a $25 deposit due with registration for each week you choose to attend. The balance of $125 will be due on the Monday of each week of attendance.
DAILY: Daily rates are $33 per day. There is a $10 deposit due with registration for each day you choose to attend. The balance of $23 per day will be due on the Monday of each week of attendance.


Your daughter will need to have breakfast prior to her arrival at camp as we DO NOT provide a morning meal; however, early arrivers are welcome to bring breakfast and eat at camp if arriving prior to 8:40am. Your daughter will need to bring a healthy lunch and a microwave and refrigerator will be available. We will be providing a free pizza lunch each Thursday.


If you choose to cancel all or part of your scheduled dates, you are still responsible for the balance due, unless two weeks notice is given. Deposits cannot be transferred to another week unless two weeks notice is given AND there is an opening available that week.

Before your daughter's space can be reserved, please click on the links below, fill out the required forms and return them to Cecil Dancenter with the $30 annual camp registration fee per family. Cash, check, debit & credit cards are accepted.
