Camp Themes 2018 - Early Explorers Division

Summer Camp River Boat Field TripThe Summer Expeditions Day Camp themes for 2018 are the same for both divisions of campers.  Instead of traveling off-campus for field trips, our youngest campers enrolled in the Early Explorers division will enjoy a full series of guest speakers and fun interactive on-campus field trips, from outside organizations, related to our theme.
