SUMMER CAMP 2020
<< Earth, Water, Fire >>
The virtual camp this year mirrors the one that we had planned to be held on-campus, but with a fantastic adaptation for "home use". Campers will be taught the exciting elements of preparing a camp space on three different optional levels: "traditional" camping (cool gadgets and camping gear), "roughing it" camping (nothing but the woods!), and "indoor" camping (right in the comfort of your own home)! With the interactive, informative, and FUN camp design, your kiddos will pretty much be able to take care of everything to set up a campsite by Friday. You will all be invited to a wonderful experience complete with shelter, really good foods cooked over a fire, and plenty of entertainment activities to enjoy overnight in the great outdoors (or indoors)!
Families will be invited to share their experiences all week and compare stories of their overnight adventures via a super fun "Tour My Campsite" Zoom Party on Friday >>
Sign up and let's get camping!!!
