2015 Summer Camp Banquet Celebration

ZYEP's 2015 Summer Camp was a huge success. Campers and counselors agreed, "this was the most fun camp yet!"  

The summer kicked off with a great Community Planting Day with campers and their families planting out the Summer Camp Garden. Sixty-five children and fifteen high school and college age counselors tended the garden all summer long, while also playing sports and games, swimming, and hiking (including our first trip to Ice Caves!).

Campers also learned traditional dances and performed these for the community at our Camp Banquet.
