Special event programs offered throughout the summer include: dancing, music and campcraft. The Camp Berger program is designed to give campers a chance to select and participate in programs of their choice away from the pressures of highly organized and strictly scheduled activities. A balanced program is offered with both individual and group participation, the statement said.
