5th & 6th Graders

Forest Ridge Campers receive amazing opportunities to practice good sportsmanship, develop crucial communication skills and learn to work together in a community setting.

Whether planning their overnight activities, performing a skit together or creating a collective art project, counselors ensure that every child in the group has a role.

"Teamwork" is an effective tool for Forest Ridge campers who learn to work together and appreciate each other's strengths and celebrate our differences.
