Summer Resident Camp

Live the Adventure - Camp Life is the Best Life!

Registration opens in February

 

     We had a great summer with campers, volunteers, and summer staff. Be sure to go to the Camp Judy Layne Facebook page to see pictures from the summer. Camp was a little different this year to help keep everyone safe, but we still were able to enjoy the adventures and the friendships that are formed at camp.
