Elkhorn is starting point for summer fun

Express Staff Writer

From quintessential summer experiences such as pressing wildflowers to action-oriented activities such hiking, kids at Elkhorn Kids' Camp are sure to come away with lasting memories.

"We are looking forward to ice skating in Sun Valley, tennis lessons in Elkhorn, adventures in Warm Springs and River Run," said owner Erin Tippetts.

"We will continue our frequent trips to Atkinson Park, the Forest Service Park and the Ketchum water fountain park, as well as engage in all of our other favorite activities like fishing, hiking, arts and crafts, water games, sports and enjoying all that the Sun Valley area has to offer. The children at our camp are on the go, and have a great time day in and day out."

Elkhorn Kids' Camp, now in its 20th year, accommodates children ages 4-10. The Seekers group, which offers half- or full-day options, accommodates campers 4 and 5 years old. The masters group is designed for children aged 6-10.

Camp runs Monday through Friday, June 11 through Aug. 24. There are half-day and full-day options.
