2014 Lawrenceville Summer Celebration Day Camp IS OPEN FOR REGISTRATION!


Lawrenceville Summer Celebration Day Camp

2014 marks the 7th season of Lawrenceville United’s Summer Celebration Day Camp.  As we have noted in the past, we are working to make this camp a strong, stable asset for the Lawrenceville community.  In order to do so, we are continuing to work with many great partners and developing a strong partnership with the Estelle S. Campbell Boys & Girls Club.  Early registration is encouraged since camp is limited to eighty participants.
