Camp Elderberry

Camp Elderberry is a full day, outdoor experience with the entire Lincoln community. There are lots of activities during the day and a huge potluck in the evening, ending with the 5th Grade Graduation Ceremony. You may also choose to campout in one of the rustic cabins, a tent or you can really rough it in the dormitory.
