“The interactive lessons for this year’s camp programming focuses on an Island Adventure theme,” announces Rick Peterson, C.A.R.E. Director. “Students will also participate in recreational activities and community service projects. There is a small registration fee to participate ($10 individual/$15 family). Scholarships are available if needed. One of the highlights of the camp will be a field trip.”
