They can do just that at summer day camp sessions at Camp Brimacombe, where they can have outdoor adventures while exploring their environment and learning through play! At Camp Brimacombe, campers participate in creative and engaging activities in a supportive and holistic-focused setting. Through the lively weekly programs, kids grow emotionally by gaining new experiences, developing fundamental skills and fostering new friendships.
