With summer sun and fun right around the corner, our team is diving into camp preparation and planning. This year will include many of the traditional Mountaineers Summer Camp activities in addition to new ventures. This year, we’re launching a Day Camp program on the East Side, expanding our Summer Camp offerings to include week-long Day Camp programs in Renton starting in 2024. 

From July 1 through August 9, campers are invited to join us at Kennydale Memorial Hall for a week of outdoor adventure skill building, crafting, and fun! Each week’s theme will feature different activities and field trips. Read on to learn more about each new week.
