In the event of a change, participants enrolled in an affected school will be contacted by the Recreation Department for re-location.)
Special Features: Each of the 6 weeks has a specific theme. Trips, activities, & special events will be geared toward these themes. The camp will be divided into three age groups based on enrollment within each school (Colts, Stallions and Mustangs). Trips may vary based on group.
