Beaverpalooza is a much-anticipated yearly event that kicks off Beaver Summer Camp’s campaign to sponsor Camp to Belong. During the fun-filled, musical, and fruitful Upper Camp event on the front circle, campers played games such as Kan Jam, bean bag toss, ladder toss, human ring toss, and many more! Participating in these activities earned campers tickets that represent a certain number of camp supplies to be donated to Camp to Belong, which is is an organization that reunites siblings who are in separate out-of-home placements.
