Day Camps for Children 5-11 yrs!
- At Camp Spirit we value listening to & experiencing Sacred Stories, enjoying times of Creativity & Science, moving to Music, Sharing Meals together, and fostering Community, Friendships & Leadership!
- Camp Spirit LIT is about to making friendships, developing leadership skills, and having fun. LITs play games, explore the camp's theme, and challenge themselves and each other in leadership skills and activities. LITs work together to decide what they are most interested in leading - following their gifts and passions. LITs work as a team to lead Camp Spirit Day Campers in some activities (with Staff supervision!).
