Ages 5-14 (Please note that due to the intensive nature of our camps, we are unable to accommodate 4-year-olds) Join us for a week of pirate-themed activities. The children will make pirate pouches to collect treasure on a nature walk, make personalized pirate flags, learn authentic pirate knots and lashings, participate in a treasure hunt with puzzles and riddles and compete in a day-long water battle for ‘the booty'. Please note that Pirate Camp will not take place on July 4, but will resume for the water battle on July 5, 2019.
