The parking lot will be crowded, so please be patient and drive extra carefully and slowly. We are doing our best to ensure there is as little impact to your visit as possible.
   
There will be lots of children and "joyful" noise filling our program rooms, fields, and hallways. Remember, on rainy days, they will be occupying every dry room and space they can find if they are not on a field trip. Camp does utilize a number of tents on the outside, but with over 200 children in camp per week, we will need to keep the campers dry, so please be aware of weather conditions.
 
TRAFFIC REMINDER:
  • There will be a change of traffic flow for the summer. In the parking lot, the lane closest to the building will be for northbound traffic only!
