Every two years, the world comes together to celebrate something we all love: sports and games. This summer, we will join in the fun. Learn about other countries, traditions they have and the games that we all have in common.

Before we part ways, we will write an amazing final chapter. We will revisit some of this summer’s greatest games, sing our favorite songs, and remember all of the fun memories made at camp. There will be water games, art projects, group challenges, and much more. Summer camp may come to an end, but the memories last a lifetime.
