Make true friends

Camp is the place where kids make their very best friends. Free from the social expectations pressuring them at school, camp encourages kids to relax and make friends easily. All the fun at camp draws everyone together— singing, laughing, talking, playing, doing almost everything together. Everyday, camp creates friendships!

Reconnect with nature

Camp is a wonderful antidote to “nature deficit disorder,” to the narrow experience of modern indoor life. Outdoor experience enriches kid’s perception of the world and supports healthy child development. Camp gets kids back outside!

Have free time for unstructured play

Free from the overly-structured, overly-scheduled routines of home and school, life at camp gives children much needed free time to just play. Camp is a slice of carefree living where kids can relax, laugh, and be silly all day long. At camp we play!

Experience success and become more confident

Camp helps children build self-confidence and self-esteem by removing the kind of academic, athletic and social competition that shapes their lives at school. With its non-competitive activities and diverse opportunities to succeed, camp life is a real boost for young people. There’s accomplishment every day!

Grow more independent

Camp is the perfect place for kids to practice making decisions for themselves without parents and teachers guiding every move. Managing their daily choices in the safe, caring environment of camp, children welcome this as a freedom to blossom in new directions. Camp helps kids develop who they are.

Learn social skills

Coming to camp means joining a close-knit community where everyone must agree to cooperate and respect each other. When they spend the day together, they see firsthand the importance of sincere communication. Camp builds teamwork!

Gain resiliency

The kind of encouragement and nurture kids receive at camp makes it a great environment to endure setbacks, try new things, and see that improvement comes when you give something another try. Camp helps conquer fears!

Develop life-long skills

Camps provide the right instruction, equipment and facilities for kids to enhance their sports abilities, their artistic talents, and their adventure skills. The sheer variety of activities offered at camp, makes it easy for kids to discover and develop what they like to do. Camp expands every child’s abilities.

Unplug from technology

When kids take a break from TV, cell phones, and the Internet, they rediscover their creative powers and engage the real world — real world, real people, real activities. They realize, there’s always plenty to do. Camp is real!

Spend their day being physically active

As children spend so much time these days inside and mostly sitting down, camp provides a wonderful opportunity to move. Running, swimming, jumping, etc. Camp is action!
