From Parents:

Words of camper parents from our 2022 Day Camps.

"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!"

"My son loves Keystone Science Camp! How could you not when the scenery is so awesome and so are the counselors! The counselors are engaged and very knowledgeable."

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