    I have had a great time at Cooking camp! I’m so sad to be leaving tomorrow! Making Jam was so fun! It was so cool how we used the solar oven to cook s’mores! I’m excited for pizza tomorrow.

    What date does your registration open? Do you offer before/after care, and if so, what is the cost?

    I’m interested in booking camp for my daughters age 9 and 11 next year – Is it only the Green explorers camp available to them? We can’t go that week but they would love the science or art one, possible to book for those instead?

  • My son, Finn is really excited about the NEW LIT camp. I knew he was keen but on the weekend he saw his granddad and the first thing out of his mouth was all about the LIT camp and volunteering! My dad was very impressed! I think attending the LIT camp makes Finn feel very grown-up! Thanks for creating such a great opportunity!
