Encompass, which recently won the 2014 Macaroni Kid Gold Daisy Award for “Most Loved Summer Camps” in Snoqualmie Valley, will offer 43 week-long half-day camps between June 23 and August 15. The camps will cover a wide range of interests for children ages 2 to 10 years old and registration opens March 25.

The variety of camps offered is reflected in the camp names, from “Mini Monets”, “LEGO Mayhem”, “Space Explorers”, “Cooking with Disney”, “Rescue 911”, “Broadway Bound”, “Under the Sea” and “Mythbusters.” The camps cover a wide selection of activities that are sure to spark excitement and wonder in children.

Two camps that are perennial favorites are “Gymnastics”, which involves outside instruction from Jets Gymnastics Express, and “I Love a Parade”, in which children create the Encompass float for the Festival at Mount Si and Snoqualmie Railroad Days parades.

Encompass has also added new camp themes to its line-up this summer, including “Superheroes” and “Encompass Olympics.”

Camps are divided by age group, including age 2, ages 3 to 4, ages 5 to 7 and ages 8 to 10. Camp fees range from $82 to $131 per week.

Encompass will offer a bonus program for pre-teens, a Camp Assistant program, in which children ages 11 to 13 can shadow camp teachers and join in on the fun for just $50 per camp.

Camps are held at the Encompass Main Campus, 1407 Boalch Ave., N.W., North Bend.

Encompass offers programs to children with all abilities. Additional fees may apply.
