This year, we will be “travelling” Around the World!  Each week’s theme will encompass a different region of the world.  When we break into small groups, campers can choose activities based on food and snacks, games and sports, or crafts and activities, and on Thursday afternoon, we’ll put it all together and have a party to celebrate!  Our large group games, nature activities, tabletop games, and playground/fort time will be a big part of the week.  Wednesday field trips will generally be for swimming and Friday field trips will be for other destinations.  Field trips listed below may change due to weather or other circumstances:
