Explorer’s Week (August 13-17)
Summer is all about new adventures! This week at camp, we will explore all 33 acres of Blithewold’s gardens & grounds! Join us and discover amazing adaptations, frog pond fun, outdoor survival skills, botany in the kitchen, a photo scavenger hunt, an around the world expedition, art al fresco, archeological digs, and volcano building!

This week will end with a Family Fun Friday Performance of Keith Munslow on Friday, August 17. Keith presents a one-of-a-kind show that will delight everyone with its unique mix of funny and original songs and stories, tongue-twisting poems, oddball characters and on-the-spot cartoon drawing.
