About Camp

Summer camps have a tremendous impact on young people. Having the chance to spend quality time with caring adult staff allows campers to develop character strengths and social-emotional skills necessary for their future success. We strive to bring out the best in every child by filling their days with meaningful experiences and fun. Our work is built around our camp values:

Community – Teamwork – Learning – Self-Reliance – Friendship – Grit – Adventure – Leadership- Zest for Life- Gratitude

Camp curriculum includes science, nature exploration, art, games, clubs, active play and themed activities each week. Activities are led by summer camp staff as well as specialists in the areas of science, nature, and art.
