OUR PHILOSOPHY & VALUES
We view camp as a unique opportunity for children to experience fun and exciting activities that they may not normally have access to. We strive to provide a physically and emotionally safe environment that serves as a backdrop for social, intellectual, and creative growth. Our staff actively creates an atmosphere that engenders a sense of belonging in participants. Youth will have the opportunity to make lasting friendships, try new activities, explore nature, and more.
We value fun, enthusiasm, discovery, integrity, civility, and citizenship.
