Do you enjoy exploring nature, hiking, cooking on a stick, eating s’mores, singing silly songs, making crafts and best of all making new friends? Then join us at Icimani Adventure Center for Dark Hollow Day Camp – Friends, Fun, Freezy Pops. We will even have time to play games, plan skits and enjoy a special campfire and to cool us down – our famous Freezy Pops!

 

Discover why Dark Hollow Camp is our special place! We will enjoy our creek, trails and special programs. We will beat the summer heat as we splash and play at our Wet and Wild water day! All campers will spend the night June 27th. Campers in grades 2-6 can earn a special camp patch if they participate in prescribed activities at camp.
