This is a platform to provide an experience where relationships and communities are built, where best friends are made for life. A place where you can simultaneously be a kid while growing up, all at the same time. An experience of a spirit that cannot be fully understood or explained from the outside looking in. It does make sense, and every summer, you come home a little weirder (in the best way) than when you left.

At camp, you’re encouraged to try new things, and are often rewarded for doing so. There are limitless opportunities to step out of your comfort zone – from playing new games, trying new foods, or making new friends. You learn so much about what you are capable of, gaining more confidence in your abilities and helping you to discover your full potential.
The experience will teach you how to be respectful of others, your environment, and yourself. Respect means taking pride in your accomplishments, treating others how you want to be treated, and keeping your environment clean – among many other things. In today’s busy world, having respect for yourself and for others allows you the ability to grow as an individual and create strong communities.
Anyone who has been to camp knows that a huge part of what makes camp so memorable are the games (…along with the competitiveness that accompanies them). Camp games help foster cooperation and communication and encourage you to treat everyone like a teammate. It doesn’t take long to learn that you have more fun and are more successful when you work together as a team. Camp has a way of throwing you together with people you’ve never met before and forcing you to figure out how to work with them to make it the best summer possible.
Camp thrives on the simple things. Things like campfires, pool days, dress-up, making friendship bracelets, roasting marshmallows, nature hikes, searching for shooting stars, arts and crafts, and trivia games. Without the constant need for technology, camp helps you to recognize and express thanks for the wonderfully simple things in life.
