Virtual Rec N Crew Camp & Other Area Camps (in-person & virtual)
Although we cannot hold our outdoor Rec N Crew Camp, we still want to give our campers something to look forward to and to have FUN! Virtual Rec N Crew will run from 7/6 – 7/31 and will give at least one activity each weekday for your camper to take part in. We have created a private camp Facebook group that parents may post pictures and comments in for their campers. If you are not a Facebook user the activities and directions will be emailed to you! We can’t wait to see all of your smiling and creative faces!
Registration is $15 per camper. Register at: https://register.communitypass.net/Montgomery Each camper who registers by 7/10 will receive a free T-shirt!
Daily themes for camp are : Make Something Monday, Teamwork Tuesday, Wacky Wednesday, Throwback Thursday and Fantastic Friday. For more information, call (609) 466-3023.
