2017 Camp Green Zone
NEW: Drop In fee – $65 per day for members only.
As fall turns into winter, I am thinking more and more about next summer, it’s true, I really do live for Camp! My thoughts keep going back to this past summer and just how successful it was. In 2016 we went from a half day camp to a full day camp, increased our activities, added new counselors, added more weeks to the camp and grew our membership by over 300%!
This is just the tip of the iceberg, we want to keep making DSRC Camp Green Zone the place to be! I wanted to extend a special thank you to everyone that participated in 2016, we can’t wait to see you back in 2017. As always, we want to reach out to those that did not participate and let you know that our doors will be open again in 2017 and we are looking forward to serving your family.
Please read below for a brief preview of what 2017 will look like and some of what people told us about our 2016 camp. As always, please reach out to me at email@example.com, with any questions or feedback. Have a great winter and spring and we look forward to seeing you in June!
Thinking of Camp Green Zone in August? We have openings week of August 14, 21 & 28th !

“Camp Green Zone was a wonderful outdoor experience for our daughter. We were very impressed with all of the planned activities for the kids. Their day included tennis, swimming, hiking, creeking, exploring, art and music. Our daughter has attended many local summer camps, and Camp Green Zone is her favorite! Thank you, Rosie & DSRC!” —Brian & Maureen Vandegrift
