Guest Column: What’s Happening at Camp Funplex
There are dozens of summer camps out there, but there is only ONLY one Camp Funplex. No other summer camp combines an amusement park and water park with learning experiences, experienced counselors and a flexible schedule. In addition, long-time friendships are made here. In fact, many of our counselors were also campers here for many years. Camp Funplex is everything kids love about the Funplex combined with sports, that “Rah Rah” camp feeling, and structured activities to keep their minds busy and their bodies’ active. And most of all—it’s FUN!...
