Friday is Visiting Day

On Friday parents are invited to come to camp around 8:30 am. Your camper can walk around with you and show you how they have spent their week. At 9:00 am parents can join us in the pavilion as we sing songs and start our day with a flag raising ceremony. We ask that after the flag raising, all parents head back to their cars so campers can start their activities for the final day of the camp week. The camp store will be open to parents from 8:30 am to 9:30 am. This is separate from Council Fire, which is held for campers and staff in the afternoon.
