Junior Adventurers (Ages 10-12)
This is the perfect fit for campers ages 10-12 ready for a new experience. Experience the thrills of Adventure Unit and TLC of Camp Discovery with this new program that acts as a stepping stone between the 2. Participants will experience great trips together with the Adventure Unit (ages 12 to 15), yet still develop relationships within their own age group.
Sessions A, B, C and D will be held at Timothy Edwards Middle School. Sessions E, F, G and H will be held at Orchard Hill Elementary School
