New in 2023

Camp Recky will offer kitchen time for our campers, with a different theme geared toward a specific age group. This program activity is not what we formerly called Kids in the Kitchen, but a modified version of it for the summer of 2023.

Kitchen time will be part of our afternoon rotation for ALL campers to have the opportunity to participate at no additional cost. Each age group will have certain weeks they will be able to participate in basic kitchen activities.

Campers who are not interested in Kitchen will have alternative sport and recreation activities they will be able to participate in.
