As the name suggests, this camp is open to members in the Junior and Intermediate age categories.  For five days, campers will explore underneath the forest canopy, amongst the ferns and in the vast, open fields, on the lake and beach, using nature as their backdrop for frolicking, forming friendships and actively engaging with their surroundings. Sunny days and starry nights, chalk-full of cool sessions and activities plus a special excursion to the Ellis Bird Farm, are sure to spark curiosity and creativity along with consideration for others and the environment.  Campers will begin to see the world as a pretty cool place to discover, enjoy themselves, be heard and make a difference.
