You will be greeted by a staff trained to handle your needs. That includes a medic that is certified to handle our medication distribution at meal times. The camp Trading Post is stocked with camp t-shirts, caps, water bottles and basic camp supplies. We also offer snacks and drinks and it is the place to pick up your shooting sports patches and extra glow stuff for the Light Parade.
