Members finishing grades 6th-8th are invited to attend “Survivor: Canter’s Cave” from June 6 – 9. Come see which Canter’s Cave myth becomes legend as tribes compete in activities throughout camp. Will your tribe win bragging rights? We will see.
Teen Camp will be June 14 – 17 and is always a great time. High ropes, cliff rappelling, and a canoe trip down Salt Creek are just a few of the adventures you’ll take at Teen Camp. Take a break from the summer rush and hang out with old friends at camp!
