Units participate in age appropriate nature, crafts, skills and specialty activities that are taught by Program Volunteers. Imagine the opportunity to build a fire, cook and eat outdoors, hand-crank ice cream, weave a basket, and choose your own leather and craft projects. All campers will even decorate their own camp t-shirt!
