2022 SENIOR CAMP (GRADES 4-5)

Camp starts each day at Main Beach. While at the beach, campers experience open swim time, sand castle building, canoeing, kayaking and playground fun. At their sites they will have a fun-filled day of arts and crafts, group games, nature activities, and outdoor/playground play. Each week campers will look forward to one local field trip such as the splash pad at Woodscreek Park, campfires and archery at Veterans Acres Park, visits to the Nature Center or fishing at Shamrock Hills Park and one regular day field trip.

Please refer to our monthly calendars for a detailed schedule. Our weekly Camp Connect e-newsletters will keep you up-to-date on all camp happenings and special events.
