Daytime activity groups (color groups to experienced campers) will be divided by age as well. That will allow kids to stay with their friends all day, and still meet other kids in the county that share their interests. All of the campers will be together for evening activities, meals, and special programs.

Camp Derricotte facilities include a full size swimming pool and comfortable cabins with showers and restrooms in the cabin.
