Camp Directory

We are planning an exciting line up of in-person and virtual camps. Changes have been made to our in-person camp structure this year in order to keep campers and staff safe and to follow current health and safety guidelines during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This includes the addition of outdoor activities for all campers.  As a result Afternoon Adventures has been cancelled and most camps changed to full day.  For more information about our new safety protocols please check our FAQs page by clicking here
