We’re having a fun summer at camp. It’s a little different than normal, adapted for maximum health safety: half day camps, smaller groups, all outdoors, separate staff for morning and afternoon programs, no carpooling or hayrides. So far, so good. The kids are wonderful, resilient.

Parents drop off the kids directly at the designated play area at the preserve, where Pine Creek awaits.

There’s still plenty to do in nature and fun to be had doing it.
