Focus campers combine activity periods to spend the equivalent of half-day each day in their specialty area.

When ... All Focus Camps are offered during every session throughout the summer.
Foundation ... Experiences on the team-building Challenge Ropes Course build the framework for individual and group dynamics within the camp community. The personal and social values gained through 'Challenge' experiences project beyond camp into life at home and school. For more 'Challenge' details click Challenge Ropes Course.
