This is the best camp that my son attended this summer. The staff are knowledgeable, engaging and helpful. There was a campers program on the last day as well as an awards ceremony. My son was excited to go every day!

Lovely setting. So peaceful and quiet. Watch the 20 species of butterflies flutter around. There are guides to walk you through. Humid but that is expected! A well kept building. Snake house in the back through gardens.
