everything you need to know

Are you ready for a summer filled with learning, fun, and a whole lot of laughter? If so, our summer camps are just what you're looking for. Whether you're interested in gemstones, animals, or surviving in the wilderness, a great summer camp experience is only a click away. All of our campers will have opportunities to visit with the animals and explore the caverns if they choose. Full day campers will need to bring a lunch with them Monday through Thursday. We will have a campfire lunch every Friday consisting of hot dogs, potato chips, marshmallows, and veggies.
