MAJORS AND MINORS
All your favorite activities have returned and new programs are in the works, promising to make this summer more dynamic than ever!
At Summer Camp @Ross, campers select from a variety of Morning Majors and Afternoon Minors, tailoring their camp experience to topics they are interested in and want to learn about. Majors and Minors encompass all kinds of topics, from science, to creative arts, to athletics, and are led by specialists in the field and experienced counselors. Delicious and nutritious lunches served in the Ross Café keep campers fueled throughout the day, and sessions are punctuated with fun theme days, special visitors, performances, and other entertainment.
