Typical Virtual Schedule
My kids (9 & 7) attended medic camp a few weeks ago. They had the BEST time. The kids did something new every day and they came away from camp with so many valuable learnings. The camp was very well organized. Amanda was great! The instructors were very nice and fun. We will be back next year! I’d recommend this camp to any parent looking for a camp that’s different and rewarding.
