Winter Camp


The Winter Camp Program provides its participants with educational activities that help reinforce basic academic skills, teach environmental awareness in a hands-on setting and strengthen socialization skills with youth between the ages of 12 – 18.  During the program, the participants will also participate in recreational activities, community service projects, and learn outdoor living skills.  This unique program operates November through March with selected weekends at Moss Hollow.   It includes special in-town cultural activities and educational events along with our annual year end college tour. Children will be grouped into four clubs based on age and grade level and will also be housed in separate villages based on gender.
