Following the afternoon competitions, a ‘Closing Ceremony’ will take place during which, each participant will be named and presented with a certificate. The concluding activity will be T-Shirt signing and photos where participants can have Troopers, volunteers and fellow participants sign their shirts and take pictures to commemorate the day.
This camp is free to the participants and will include lunch and a camp t-shirt. All participants will be required to be accompanied by a parent or caregiver during the entire camp.
