By the end of the week, campers take home a wand, many magical creations, and numerous great memories. Offered for ages 7-11. Space is limited to 30 campers and a minimum of 15 campers are needed to run the program. Register early to receive your Wizarding School acceptance letter. Members $275; Nonmembers $325.
