Camps

Campers have fun while gaining appreciation for nature by meeting live animals, building forts, and getting their hands dirty.

Fall Break Camp is open!

Dodge is offering three days of Fall Break Camp this year: October 14, 15, and 16. One theme is offered for both grade levels: Forts and Fires. To ensure equal opportunities for as many kids as possible to experience camp, you are only permitted to register your child for one day of camp.

All camps cost $55. Interested in applying for a scholarship? Find more information here.

New safety guidelines and camp procedures have been established. See ‘Information You Need to Know’ below for details.
