  • Junior Leaders

    The Junior Leader Program is designed for adolescents ages 12-14 (must be in grades 7-9) who are interested in mentoring younger campers. As a junior leader, you will learn skills such as responsibility and behavior management while assisting camp counselors with arts and crafts, games and special events. This volunteer time may be applied to your National Honor Society volunteer hours.

  • 10 DAY PUNCH PASS

    NEW for 2018! Campers will get a key chain fob to swipe in each day.

    If punch pass was purchased online, parent will need to come to the administration office to pick up the key chain fob before children can attend camp. Scanners will be located in the beach office or next to ET sign-in sheets.

    The punch pass option allows campers to attend ten camp days throughout the 10-week sessions. Each sibling will need their own pass for this new system. The fob will not scan twice in one day. If you lose your fob, there is a $5 replacement charge.

    Smaller passes are available on the last week of camp. Pass usage can be seen on your CLPD online account.
