Cost for the camps is $400 for each camp and includes all meals, a daily snack, class supplies and camp T-shirt. All camps begin on Sunday and end on Friday evening. Full payment registration is available online at www.accessclarkcounty.com/parks until April 27. Walk-in registration is from May 1 to June 1 with a $100 deposit and full payment due by June 1.
The On the Edge Camp is geared to ages 13 to 15 and will be held from July 19-24. The fun and challenging camp for teens features outdoor adventure recreation activities such as a high-ropes course, mountain biking, hiking, a one-night campout under the stars, cabin games and skits, crafts, campfires and a dance with a live DJ.
The Omni Camp is for ages 8 to 12 and will be held from July 26-31. During this popular camp, children will participate in interactive classes in the sciences, arts and outdoor adventure recreation. Traditional camp activities will include hikes, campfires, sing-a-longs, cabin and counselor skits and special guest speakers.
