Camp is on for Fall 2021!

DMS will return to Colvig Silver Camps in August! We’ll spend seven Fridays in the beginning of the school year learning about and appreciating our environment and the world around us — while also enjoying swimming, kayaking, hiking, and more. Our families loved this opportunity last fall, and we are thrilled to be able to do it again.
