2020 Summer Camp: Specialty Camps

SPECIALTY CAMPS 
filled with adventure, fun, learning, and more!

Our Specialty Camps are developed specifically to help students engage in activities that match their interests.  Specialty Camps are the perfect way to fuel your child's passion or even help them hone in on a new hobby.  With a variety of themes each week combines specific skills, activities and experiences with traditional camp activities like, arts & crafts, camp games and outdoor adventures.  Youth develop a greater passion for the things they love or they can try out something new!

WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD BRING TO CAMP?

We ask that all campers bring a water bottle (we have very active days and campers get thirsty), sunscreen, swimsuit & towel and a backpack for belongings. Closed-toe shoes only-NO FLIP FLOPS, as we do lots of walking and hiking. We also ask that campers not bring electronics, cell phones or personal play items. We work hard to ensure that all campers eat healthy and nutritious foods during the day and ask that sodas, juices and energy drinks not be brought to camp.

 

WE ARE OPERATING OUR CAMPS BASED ON THE GUIDELINES PROVIDED BY GALLATIN COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT THAT DETERMINES THE NUMBER OF KIDS WE CAN SERVE IN OUR CAMPS. WE HAVE REDUCED OUR CAMP CAPACITY FOR THE SUMMER AT THIS TIME. WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO PUT YOUR KIDS ON THE WAITLIST IN CASE WE ARE ABLE TO INCREASE OUR CAMP NUMBERS.
