Summer Camp is one of those few places where children learn who they really are and who they can become. Ask any person about their most memorable summer time experience and summer camp often tops the list.
Camp gives children the opportunity to learn, grow and have fun in a safe, caring environment. Our campers will be surrounded by committed staff, handpicked for their dedication to children and the camp experience. We are excited to provide your child with an experience that emphasizes the inherent worth of every child.
At camp, it dosen't matter how much money you have, where you are from, what religion you practice, or any other labeling stereotype; you are just a camper. That's why camp is a place where kids learn how to accept others and find the value in themselves and every other camper.
