Did we mention that there is a campsite decorating contest?
Campers who are feeling extra creative are encouraged to enter our Campsite Decorating Contest! Are you a Boston Red Sox household? Maybe your child likes Harry Potter? Maybe unicorns, cupcakes, and rainbows top the list!
We would love to see your creativity at work. Submit your photos to Grace Bibber, Recreation Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or send them via Facebook Messenger.
