Campers should be prepared to spend the majority of each day outside exploring – regardless of weather, including rain (except in the case of severe weather)! Each week will include taking care of the S.O.L.E. Camp garden, hiking field trips to explore new places, and lots of games, crafts, exploration, and adventure!
