More information for you!
Campers will travel with a field trip leader via CapMetro to their scheduled destination, explore, enjoy a picnic lunch, explore some more, and then return back to their drop off/pick up location. The schedule of activities are planned in advance but subject to change due to weather. There is a great deal of walking, with a focus on fitness and healthy eating during our camp.
Kids have more fun when their friends join the adventure! Refer a friend for one week for a $25 credit ($50 credit for a two week sign up).
