Looking for the perfect summer camp for your child? We know that camp is more than just a nice website with some pretty pictures and a video, and the best way to be sure you’re going to get the sleep away camp experience you’re looking for is to see it in action!

Everyone got a chance to participate in multiple different fun games and activities. Games included basketball, dodge ball, soccer, and knock-out, working up an appetite that couldn’t be ignored! So we topped off the activities with some delicious pizza, pasta, chips and salad!
