Wow! The MK office is positively buzzing this morning from the thrill of our 2014 Super Camp Fair — the area's biggest and best pre-camp event — held yesterday at the Conshohocken Marriott. With more than 65 camps and 300-plus families in attendance, the hotel halls were literally humming with happy campers who tried their hand at fantastic activities, got tons of info to make an informed summer camp choice and left with prizes and goodies galore!

Check out the photos and photo gallery below for a glimpse at the great day had by all at MK's 2014 Super Camp Fair and take a look to the right to see if you were one of our big Super Camp Fair prize winners!
