Field trips, friends and serious fun. Campers will explore different themes each week, engaging in fun activities such as town tours, scavenger hunts, cooking projects, laser tag as well as exciting and fun field trip adventures. We will go to Elitch Gardens every week, and if you sign up for three or more weeks, your teen will get to keep an Elitch’s Season Pass! No teens will be bored this summer as we are adding new activities, keeping up with the trends and ensuring fun is had by all.
