Summer Camp
Carowinds Discount Gold Season Pass
We are already looking ahead to summer….  
Lincoln Charter School has arranged for our families to enjoy the season at Carowinds at a discount. You may purchase a Carowinds Gold Season Pass for only $92, approximately $20 in savings.  This option is open for all families to purchase.

This is a great option for our LCS Summer Day Camp campers.  Every Thursday for 8 weeks, the Denver Summer Day Camp program sends campers, rising 3rd thru 8th graders, and 9th thru 12th graders who serve as Counselors in Training, to Carowinds.  The Lincolnton Summer Day Camp (ages TBD) will also be traveling to Carowinds on Thursdays throughout the summer.
Deadline to purchase through MPP is Thursday, April 12th.  
After the deadline closes, you will receive a voucher to take with you to the park to have your permanent ID card made.

If you have questions about Carowinds passes, please contact Beth Harris.  If you have questions about Summer Camp, please contact Christina Williams.
