In the words of parents:

“We love that the kids are able to explore and experience the outdoors. We see camp as an opportunity for them to gain confidence, try new things and learn skills like leadership.”

“Camp opens up new experiences that she otherwise wouldnt have, gives her more exposure with different peer sets, and expands her problem solving. I’ve never seen her so tired!”

“We love that kids are learning about nature and science and that they are outdoors enjoying themselves. Counselors are great!”
