Summer CampsHanging out at the lake

RLYC believes that every child deserves the opportunity to experience nature at it fullest by attending summer camp. Therefore, we make an effort to focus on nature – which means no TVs, computers, cell phones, IPODS, etc. We do have a camp phone and we encourage snail mail to our campers from family and friends. We look forward to seeing YOU this summer!
