The campers also enjoy singing, and serenaded News 12 with the camp's traditional song.
According to counselors, no two days are alike, assuring that campers will never be bored. The programs offered are age specific, so each year a child comes back will be different from the last. Pierce grows with your child, counselors say.
Programs are offered from ages 3 to 9 and up. The camp runs from June 30 through Aug. 22, with different sessions available.
