2020 SENIOR CAMP (GRADES 4-5)

Campers get to enjoy Veterans Acres all day! Activities include; fishing in the pond, hiking, campfires, archery, Gaga, tennis/baseball, basketball, tennis, scavenger hunts, small group games, and arts and crafts.

We are following all state and CDC guidelines for health and safety. This means smaller groups and a better staff to camper ratio.

The campers need sunscreen, gym shoes and a disposable sack lunch each day. At drop off and pick up no need to even get out of your car, we will be there to meet you!
