Each year the FCSS team gears up for a summer of fun and excitement as we organize and facilitate summer activities across Lamont County for children 4-17 years old.
Summer camps are offered to children from grades one to six and run for two weeks in July and August in communities across the County. Each week offers regular “in community” days consisting of outdoor activities and fun as well as two offsite fieldtrips.
Camps are located in the Town of Lamont, Town of Bruderheim, Town of Mundare, and the Village of Chipman.
