Nature-based summer camp

A nature-based summer camp offers full scholarships, as needed, so any child can participate. The program provides free lunch to all campers and works with the local food bank to contribute healthy snacks. Approximately half of participants (80 children in 2018) have taken advantage of the scholarship.
