I can not believe the school year is coming to a close in just a few short weeks. I hope that it has been an awesome year! I am super excited about summer camp 2015 as we have many new field trips and places to explore. We will be participating in a service project at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens, mapping the James River at Henricus Park, strolling the Canal Walk and enjoying lunch on the observation deck in the city, to name just a few.
Camp is filling up fast this year! If you have already enrolled then please remit your deposit (if you owe one) ASAP to guarantee your child’s place. If you have not enrolled and wish to then please do so soon as we have several weeks that are close to being full.
We are excited to start off this summer with a cookout for all of our campers, their families and our volunteers. Save the date, Saturday, June 20th from 4 PM to 6:30 PM. We will have some great food and plenty of information to share, including field trip schedules for the summer! This link will take you to the site with all the info.
