Field Trip Update
As you know, camp will look different this year as we adjust to keep kids and staff safe with daily health screenings and small groups, along with other health and safety protocols. Along those same lines, we will not be offering traditional field trips this year.

Instead of transporting kids to locations near and far, we will bring the field trips to them with specialized enrichment activities, and water and wheel days! Some kids may also go on walking trips with their small groups to nearby parks, nature trails, and more.
