Camps! Camps! Camps!

08252011_CritNKid1.jpgParticipation in our popular summer camps continues to expand. This year, we will host 3,600 campers at our Three Rivers in-park summer camps, an increase of about 12 percent over last year! We now offer 260 separate summer camps, and regularly modify our programs to meet growing demands and even replace less successful camps.

Three Rivers has also entered into city and school partnerships to creatively use classroom space and train seasonal education staff to maintain the high-quality experiences our campers enjoy. Most importantly, we are using these partnerships to reach more and more campers that we have not traditionally served. This year, we are especially excited to offer 13 Explorer Camps in the local parks of our first tier communities as part of our Community Engagement Initiative.
