  • Red Hot Lunch Time

    Included Free with any AM & PM Camp!
    Red Hot Lunch Time provides campers an opportunity for a lunch hour, allowing families to create a full-day experience with both an AM and PM Red Hot Camp. Campers are welcome to bring their own lunch if they do not wish to eat the lunch provided.
    After all AM camps, campers will be supervised in a designated location to eat lunch before their PM camp session begins. This is also a fun opportunity for campers to meet other kids attending a variety of Red Hot Camps that week. Our camp staff will then guide campers to their designated PM camp.
