Why The Bright Spot for Summer Camps?

We have low enrollment caps and student to teacher ratios. This provides a wonderful community building and personalized experience for each camper. For our full week camps, there is a maximum of 14 students working with 2 teachers for the week.

Our camps are custom designed for Bright Spots by Dr. Angie Madden (Bright Spot owner, camp leader, and certified and experienced educator) in collaboration with other camp teachers to maximize creativity, engagement, learning, and fun.

We provide a welcoming, friendly, inclusive environment. The Bright Spot is a beautiful, bright, kid friendly space filled with comfy places to gather, learn, and explore with a backyard area for play, activities, and picnics. All camp leaders are experienced in the field of education and know how to relate to, guide, and connect with children to create a truly lovely, unique camp experience.

Camps are drop off camps for Ages 5-12 and will run from 9-4 each day at The Bright Spot (118 Dennis Drive, Lexington KY 40503).

Campers will need to bring a packed lunch, water bottle, morning snack, and afternoon snack each day.
