A typical day consists of several planned activity periods with classic camp offerings like fun & games, sports, swimming, arts & crafts, gardening, fishing, theme days, scavenger hunts, special events, guests, and more. The day’s activity options are also presented with weekly themes to help kids explore, discover, and grow. Free transportation options are available from multiple locations throughout town (schedule currently being finalized) Breakfast and lunch are provided, free of charge, through the Summer Food Service Program.
