Overnight Summer Camp Description
Session #1 Junior Colour Warz Ages 8-11
Colour Warz is a huge part of Summer Camp; some might even go as far as to say it is "the best part of summer camp." Since it was so popular with our seniors, we extended this camp favourite to our Juniors. If you are competitive or just enjoy some silly, fun and ridiculous games, then this is the camp for you. Campers will also participate in our ropes course and aerial park adventures. Register now and be part of the weeklong competition as Team RED and Team BLUE compete in various challenges and competitions. What team will take home victory for Junior Colour Warz 2023? COST: $535
