Dunes Discovery 1

From the moment they arrive and tie-dye their signature t-shirts, campers hike, explore, and discover the beautiful natural landscape of Indiana Dunes National Park. During the week, they make new friends, play games, share meals, splash at the beach, and gather around the campfire. Kids ages 9-13.
