The two week campers will have an opportunity to participate in more of the rope course events since there are 10 activity days vs. 5 in a one week session. During the weekend of the two week session we take a little extra time to rest, walk on our Nature Trail, hold our traditional Swim Olympics-Blackhawks vs. Thunderbirds and more. We do not run the same schedule of activities as we do Monday-Friday. Many previous campers prefer the two week session and it  is our most popluar Session.
