I can't say enough about this wonderful camp. My grandsons attended and loved every second of it. Rihanna was the instructor and she did an awesome job! They learned so much. I would highly recommend it!

Fascinating! We learned so much from Park Ranger Judy about ancient forests and the native plants and trees on the Evergreen Trail!
