2018 Winter Discovery Day Camp

Base Camp has the cure for all cases of cabin fever and hibernation this winter! Join us for three exciting days of Winter Discovery Day Camp, where our fun staff will keep bodies and brains from freezing up with a range of stimulating activities in our spacious and cozy 72-degree building. Wednesday and Friday will consist of guided and free choice activities onsite at Base Camp, such as indoor climbing, archery, team games, crafts, and robotics.

Thursday’s activities will include a field trip to Phillippo Scout Reservation for snow tubing (adults are welcome to join for this day at a special rate). Registration is available for the full three-day series or for just Thursday's tubing trip. Optional early drop-off after 8:00AM and late pickup by 4:00PM is also available each day for an additional cost.
