Week 1

The Great Outdoors

Calling all Explorers! Campers will surround themselves with nature as they explore the great outdoors and learn survival skills in a fun way such as building fires, orienteering, creating debris huts, and fishing. This week is sponsored by Crown Point Community Foundation.

Future Scientist

Curiosity becomes knowledge! Feel like a scientist through a variety of fun, science-based activities! Campers will focus on fun while they conduct experiments, investigate and create new things! This week is sponsored by Teachers Credit Union Foundation.

Week 3

Get Sticky with Us

Express your creativity through messy, sticky, icky projects! Campers will work hands-on with anything messy. They will create rich, meaningful, experiences with other campers as they work with tie dye, shaving cream, whip cream, mud, and paint!
