Camp begins with sunshine and smiles
On June 17, Olympian Julia Clukey kicked off the 4th year of Julia Clukey’s Camp for Girls with a ribbon cutting for the new director’s cabin. The first day also included outdoor games, camp songs, swim testing and of course, free t-shirts!
During the next two weeks the girls will participate in a wide range of activities including swimming, kayaking, hiking, nature walks, a climbing wall, field sports, fishing, arts and crafts, theater, music and of course, Julia time!
Share your photos and memories from camp with us on social media using the hashtag #ClukeyCamp.
