    Note:  Students are welcome to enroll in both weeks of a camp type, and multiple different camps, if they so choose.  Different games and activities, as well as performing materials, will be presented each week, so students will not repeat materials and activities.

    Snacks and water will be provided each day of camp, during a ten-minute snack break.
