Each camp is designed to give your child an enriching summer experience filled with exciting adventures.

Some activities your child will enjoy are horseback riding, archery, boating, swimming, craft making, rock climbing,  and so much more. Make plans today to send your child to beautiful historic Mentone, where they will build lasting relationships and have the adventure of a lifetime.
