Countdown To Camp - June

We hope that your June started off great and that you’re counting the days to Summer 2015!  As promised, here are important dates, reminders and helpful hints to guide you in preparing for the summer ahead.   As always, if you have any questions feel free to contact us in the office.  We’re happy to help!
