Enrichment camps are the perfect fit for those campers who want to focus on more specific interests during the week.
Campers will spend at least 2.5 hours a day focusing on the enrichment camp they have signed up for.
Enrichment campers still participate in swimming, field trips, and all camp games/activities. Enrichment camps require additional supplies and sometimes different trips or guests.
