Camp 2017

It was a chilly few days at camp, but the fun activities warmed everyone right up!  AP students were treated to science, Michigan history, archery, and learned many things about various animals and reptiles, and made many new friends throughout their three day experience at camp.  AP students were also a shining example of always being on their best behavior that put a smile on all the all that attended.  Please enjoy some photos of their time
