Camp Green Meadows is offering a summer recreation camp to incoming sixth- through eighth-graders in June and asking campers to register in May.
The program runs June 8-12 at Camp Green Meadows in Fish Camp and the Sierra National Forest. To make the summer camp possible, Green Meadows needs a minimum of 50 campers to register by May 20.
The summer camp – which hosts a variety of recreational activities, including trail hikes, exploring Big Creek and a day-trip to Yosemite National Park – is different from the school year’s regular outdoor camp.
“We look forward to offering a summer camp program that will be excitingly different from what we do during the school year,” Green Meadow’s principal, Bob Bassett, said in a news release. “It really is a great opportunity for the children of Merced County and surrounding areas.”
Registration is first-come, first-served and $300 per child, which covers all meals, activities and lodging.
Children will be picked up in Merced on the morning of June 8 and returned June 12 in the early afternoon.
Checks and money orders can be used to pay registration fees. Registration packets are available at the Merced County Office of Education’s J building, 632 W. 13th St., or can be downloaded from www.campgreenmeadows.com/summercamp.
Completed packets and payments can be dropped off in Room J-1 with LaRae Demorest, Monday through Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. She can be reached at (209) 381-6630.
Also, high school cabin leaders are sought to participate and spend the week at Green Meadows.
