There will be field trips, such as one for pre-K thru 2nd grade, to the Bounce House in South Beach, one taken to Ripley’s Believe It or Not on Newport’s Bayfront for grades 3rd and up, plus groups of kids will take local field trips to spread holiday joy and sing Christmas carols at restaurants and businesses. Whether it is playing games, sports in the gym, baking cookies, building ice igloos, making graham cracker houses or participating in an egg drop competition, there will something fun for everyone at this year’s Elf Camp!
