Heartwood: Ages 9 – 12

A Summer Camp Adventure Just For Pre-Teens

As kids get older, their interests and needs change. They don’t want to be lumped in with a bunch of little kids. They do want to feel valued, included, and challenged. They want to have an adventure. MKDC’s Heartwood program is full of imaginative programming that sparks creativity and provides lots of opportunity for choice, which means campers go home with more confidence in themselves and their abilities.

Morning – one “home cabin” period, followed by major elective program (choose one for the week – see below)
AfternoonChoose Your Own Adventure, water sports/games, special events

If you have questions about this, please contact us. We will do our best to accommodate requests.
