Hello CFES Families. The staff and I continue to be super excited about welcoming all of our campers back for the 2020-2021 school year. Please notice that beginning this week a section with specific information for each each campsite (Camp Tomball Virtual School (TVS) and Camp Face to Face(F2F)) has been added. Please take a moment each week to review the information shared in our Parent Trail Guide.

I hope you all have a great week and stay dry and safe with the possibility of inclement weather. Until next week, take care of yourself and each other and know that CAMP Creekside Forest is ready and can't wait to engage with all of our families.
