Each child receives swimming lessons each day. The older children get to canoe and do archery as well as deliver “Meals on Wheels” to the elderly and disabled, as a service project. They stay busy all day and we have cookouts during the week for each age group.

There are sports, science, games, nature studies, survival training, hiking, fishing and all sorts of other things to do at camp. It is just fun for all campers. Please consider sending your child to Camp Fire Camp at least one week.

The Journey of Gnoble Gnarble

The ocean floor is filled with the rarest of creatures, but none are as rare as gnarbles. Their fins are small, their tails are floppy, and they have never strayed far from their homes…until now. Journey of the Noble Gnarble is a story of a little gnarble with a big dream, who tries to make it past doubting blyfish, sneaky subbalubbles, and hungry plinks on his way to the surface of the sea. Along the way he befriends the glinny glims who teach him the importance of positivity and determination!

Session 2 – Ages 11-14
July 9th – 20th
(8:30 am – 12:30 pm)

PRESS START: transports us inside the bright, pixelated world of video games! When the famous characters we know and love run out of lives, they decide to put on a musical fundraiser that will help them raise gold rings and play on. Through hilarious and heartfelt musical numbers we see the heroes, villains and sidekicks like we’ve never seen them before. But when things go terribly awry, it’s the quiet sidekick Little Mushroom who must find the hero within to help save the day!

Two performances will take place for each session on the final Saturday of Summer Theatre Academy. The Sunday afternoon performance will be a “Pay What You Can” event to raise money for future Theatre School Scholarship.
For more information, please call us at 940-322-5000.
