Iguana Wanna Mondays
Our Iguana Wanna Mondays programming is an opportunity for Adventure Campers and Teen Turfers to participate in specialized activities geared towards learning a new hobby, skill and/or improve in an area of interest (i.e. Theatre, Ceramics, Cooking, Kayaking, etc.).  These classes will either be taught by Counselors and/or Instructor’s brought in specifically to teach in their area of expertise.  We will try to accommodate your child’s first choices, but we can not guarantee it.  Iguana Wanna classes will occur Monday mornings from 9:30-10:15am and 11:00-11:45am (2 classes per child only).  On May 1st we will have the first session line-up for the classes on 7/10, 7/17 & 7/24.  Forms will be available and emailed to you May 1st.  Please register your child’s choices no later than June 1st.  The second session line-up forms for classes on 7/31, 8/7 & 8/14 will be available on July 17th and will need to be in by July 21st.

Camp T-Shirts
T-shirts will be the same as last year!  If you plan on sending your child on a field trip, they must wear a camp t-shirt.  You may purchase a t-shirt off our shelf.  If we are not currently stocked with the size you need, t-shirt pre-order forms must be in by June 1st, 2017 to guarantee your child’s t-shirt size.  First come, first serve on sizes.  T-shirts are priced at $12.00/shirt for 1st grade and up.  Kiddie Kamp t-shirts are available at $9.00/shirt.

Adventure Camp Field Trip T-shirts are NEON GREEN

Teen Turf Camp Field Trip T-shirts are WHITE (if your child was going into 6th grade last summer and wore a Green shirt and this year they will be going into 7th grade, then they will need to purchase a Teen Turf WHITE T-shirt this year in order to go on a field trip)
