Adult Programs

Camp can also be fun, relaxing and a learning and rewarding experience for adults. At Melita Island we take this to a new dimension.

We have also provided several stress reducing events that you can participate in, which have included: Evening Socials, Boat Rides and Pie Making Classes.
