    "May The Forest Be With You" 

" A long time ago in a woodland not so far away, Master Obi-T and her small band of companions begin an interstellar camp using the Forest as their guide....."

 All Abilities Week (June 10-14) is for ages 6-14.

 It is structured for "all", but has specific accommodations for those with special needs as it is a slower pace camp with less kids overall.  Campers will participate in fun nature classes, do crafts, enjoy archery, fishing,  and canoeing.  
Registration due by June 3, 2019.   Questions:

Pathfinders (ages 6-8) and Trailblazers (ages 9-11) Weeks
                          July 8-12  Or July 15-19
We generally have four classes or rotations each day, where the kids participate in an activity based on our theme.   Some of our "Star Wars" type classes include:   science based with "Yo...Dah" (making light sabers, hover crafts, bouncy balls, etc...), learning about different animals like squirrels(our little ewoks), beavers, busserts, woodpeckers, and more.   We will be having game time, hikes in the woods learning about trees, shooting down the death star (using sling shots), and just loads of fun!   Our staff and volunteers will be dressed some days as different characters (and usually with a twist) to create a fun and inviting adventure.
Register Early to assure your spot.
