Our camp is designed for a 9 to 1 camper-to-staff ratio during scheduled activities. We frequently travel to and from activity sites by bus and fill our day with structured learning opportunities, games and large group interaction. Therefore, this camp may not be the right fit for every child, if you need help in determining whether this camp is right for your child, please contact Camp Director, Nicole Cogbill (816) 228-0266.
Is your child between the ages of 13-15 but would still like to attend summer camp? Is your child looking for an opportunity to develop leadership skills while making new friends? Consider applying for our Counselor In Training program! As a CIT, your child will learn valuable skills while working alongside our camp staff and mentoring younger campers. Space for this selective program is limited. Applications will be accepted until Friday, May 19th.
