Join us for fun with brooms, wands and owls! Come to Cave Hill, and get a touch of Harry Potter along with learning about owls. We still have all your favorite camp activities yet with a Potter-twist to them! Come make your own wand, learn about some wonderful potions, learn to play quiditch and lots of other fun things that we are still planning. We know our rope runners will be back with the Harry Potter theme. See you at the Cave!
