Summer Camp Details

At the Shores, we say things like paintball, waverunners, high ropes, warball, giant pool with blob and trapeze. So that when your high schooler leaves, he’ll say things like, “Best week ever!” Or, “I love my new friends!” Or our personal favorite, “God is great!” If you’re ready for some life-changing gooder, cleaner, funner kind of fun, register today!
