THEME information


Campers can enjoy their sessions even more by participating in the themes! Our daily camp activities remain the same each session, but meals, campfire skits, and some evening programs will focus around the theme and we invite all to join in on the fun. Items to bring can include costumes, coloring books, trinkets, stuffed animals, and props. Please do not send any items of value. The items sent will be used and potentially get messy. Bringing theme items is not mandatory. Our counselors also help create this fun environment with crafts, projects and face paint!
