Camp Jefferson: Campers have fun at Camel Beach

Wednesday, August 15, 2018 by CASSIDY LARKIN COUNSELOR LAUREN PETERS COUNSELOR in School

Last week’s camp article was printed in error. The correct week seven and eight follow.

Week seven at Camp Whitehall was a pretty cloudy and rainy week. However, Camp Jefferson beat the odds of the rain July 31 for our Camel Beach trip. Camel Beach was an amazing fun-filled day for the children and counselors as we divided into groups to go explore the park. Camel Beach is equipped with multiple slides, a lazy river and a gigantic wave pool for all ages. We cannot wait to revisit next year, as this week is usually one of the children’s favorites.
