out the week there will be some variations by day such as “Home in the Woods” hotdog cookout on
Wednesday, and of course our popular off-site day on Thursday. On
Thursday mornings, campers visit Eden Hill (a local retirement
center) to sing to residents and help with a social activity like
bingo or bowling. In the afternoon, after lunch and rest time at the
camp, everyone goes to Landa Park to experience the spring-fed pool
complete with zip line, monster slide and a floating dock.
