If you’re wondering if your child will be safe at camp, if the experience will be uplifting, if they will have fun, or be successful making new friends — I get it. There’s a lot to think about.
Why send your child to our summer camp?
Because this is a HUGE opportunity for growth. As a parent, I know you want your child to mature, learn to persevere, develop interpersonal skills, take a break from technology, unwind from the stress of negative peer pressure - the same things I wanted for my three children. You know what? It takes mountains of courage, joy, and love to grow a great kid.
Summer camp is an amazing, exciting, non-stop, unplugged, outdoors, stay-up-late, try-new-things, grow-an-inch experience! Kids don’t know the half of what’s waiting for them, but they can’t wait to get to camp!
You’re thinking about giving your child the gift of summer camp. It’s a big step for your family, and an even bigger step for your child.
