Get ready for… virtual Family Week!

Starting June 28th – July 3rd 2020 6:30pm

See each other on zoom!

The thought of not having Family Week was too sad, and has given rise to a delightful plan to hold Family Gathering each night of camp, by Zoom. We are very excited about this unique way to create an alternative camp experience. Each night will be a little different, with different dance teachers, different music performances, and special events. Each night will end with Pied Piper to send us all off to bed. Camp will start on Sunday, June 28, at 6:30pm. Come gather with camp families from past, present and future years. Follow our upcoming Facebook Event for the full schedule as it unfolds (to get update notifications, click on Going or Interested on the FB Event). No enrollment or preregistration is needed– what a concept! Just use the Zoom link in the FB Event to join us. Here is the link to the Event page! Be sure to click on “Going” or at least “Maybe”! or email Rhonda Cayford at We look forward to seeing you at virtual camp this year!
