Summer CAMP

Monday 23 July to 27 July
8:00 am to 5:00 pm daily
Theme: Mars♂.
For ages eleven to thirteen.
$120.00 per EBR Parish Stargazer.
$144.00 per other-parish Stargazer.

The HRPO summer camp sessions for the oldest age group are the challenging sessions, only for those kids who are up to the task. Cleverly created mind-building activities, special access to certain demonstrations, electronic experiments and unique field trips put this session head-and-shoulders above the others. During the week there are door prize drawings for special items, and accomplishing certain tasks give each camper the opportunity to earn more tickets. There’s so much “advanced” that we hesitate to call it “camp!”
