06/26-07/07Everyone Gets Eaten by Sharks (8-day)Gr 7-12Teen Camp9:00am-3:00pmMon-FriA delightfully madcap comedy you're sure to devour . . . unless it devours you first. FACT: Most people, if not everyone, will eventually be eaten by sharks. But you can postpone the inevitable (and get a great deal on a timeshare!) by joining Adventure Dan on a tour through shark-infested scenarios to avoid: kayaking with meat paddles, night-swimming after prom, and genetically engineering sharks for science. Because two things in life are certain: death and taxes (and specifically, death by shark).NOSEDonny Gersonde
