Bigfoot Lock-In

My son had a great time at camp! He loved the different activities he did throughout the day. The Bigfoot Lock-In was his favorite. Looking for him in the woods and telling ghost stories by the fire are his favorite memories.
My daughter's first camp experience at Deerassic was exceptional! She immediately told me of how well organized every aspect of camp was!
My son thought that Luke was wonderful! He had so much fun with him the year before at the Bigfoot Lock-In and Luke was a big reason he wanted to come back again this year. He thought Luke was so much fun!
