Welcome Friends. We are happy to announce another summer of Camp STAR Angelina. We have been working to get ready for another great summer!
We want to make note of the important changes this year:
1. The ages have changed. Camp is being offered to camper’s ages 5-14 years old.
2. We will not be providing transportation to or from the camp. All campers will need to be dropped off and picked up at camp.
3. Campers will not be registered for camp until all information including camper application, physical, immunizations and payments are received. Please get your information in quickly. There are a limited amount of spots available for all age groups. Once these spots are filled, campers will be placed on a waiting list.
Registration Deadline is Friday, June 7.
