What if We Don't Have 10 Kids?

  1. The best option is to coordinate with another group and come out to Base Camp together, the more the merrier!
  2. To provide you with the best experience, a 10 participant rate is the minimum. However you are more than welcome to come with a smaller group and receive a great program.
  3. For Homeschoolers, Pre-K Youth, and Summer Day Campers, we have programming options that allow individual registration without a group! Check out our event calendar to sign up.
