For those who might not have what they need at home, Day Camp will have a Wacky Hair station set up in the morning so all Campers can come and do up their crazy hairdo! Don’t feel the need to limit the wackiness to just the hair, you’re whole outfit can be wacky this day if you want! This is a perfect opportunity to show off some of your personality to your fellow campers! The camper and coach with the wildest hair will receive a prize!
