There will be no camp on Tuesday, July 4th in observance of Independence Day.
WEEK 3 - July 10-July 14
The third week of Summer Camp will be all about different places around the world. We will focus on four different countries throughout the week.

Campers will make their own passports to document the things they have learned about each place. To finish the week with a Fun Friday, our counselors will be bringing in a dish from each of the places we learned about during the week.
*All dishes will be allergy free, and parents will need to sign future communications for their child to participate*
