PLEASE NOTE: Campers are not allowed to stay over the weekends. The camping experience for children from week to week at Camp Shankitunk is very similair. The weekly themes are more of a fun way to mix things up over the summer for campers attending multiple weeks and for the staff, but they don't significantly impact the Shankitunk experience. Happy camping!
