As a result of the ongoing health crisis related to COVID-19, we are unfortunately unable to offer in-person camp services this 2023 Season. We will continue to plan for a safe return of all our campers in the seasons that follow. We are actively looking at camp facilities and activities to ensure we have the best and safest environment for socialization and recreation. From our “heart” to yours.
