2024 SENIOR CAMP (GRADES 4-5)

Camp starts each day at Main Beach. Campers experience three days of swim lessons, sand castle building, canoeing, kayaking, playground fun and lunch at the beach. 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 forward to local field trips such as the splash pad at Woodscreek Park, campfires and archery at Veteran Acres Park, visits to the Nature Center or fishing at Shamrock Hills.

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.
