  • Feel a little tingle up your back at the flag ceremonies.
  • Do a variety of hands-on activities in all classes.
  • Become good friends with your counselors and other campers.
  • Spend time in the swimming pool. Learn to swim if you do not already swim.
  • Learn about shooting sports and safety at the rifle range or archery range.
  • Use an airbrush machine or scroll saw to make your very own projects.
  • Be outside and learn about nature, the environment, and wildlife.
