One-Week Session | Aug. 2-6
*You must be registered for a minimum of one session in order to participate in this one-week adventure.*
Campers will be divided into age groups (K-1, 2-3, 4-5) and will participate in a week full of age-appropriate games, lessons, activities and off-campus trips centered around service learning, team building, problem-solving and fun. Each group will have a specific theme project and goal for the week. They will make friends, learn skills, build confidence and leave with a greater understanding of the benefits of helping others!
Each group will take two field trips during the week related to their service projects. Trip schedule and specific service projects will be posted soon.
This will be a very special way for campers to end their summer!
