Camp offers a unique opportunity to enhance a child’s development, and should be considered an essential part of a child’s education. 


Great camps thrive on nurturing kids’ natural abilities. Campers are encouraged to be curious, and education driven by curiosity is a truly transformational opportunity. Camp is a place where kids can “come of age”, benefiting from new experiences that serve as a catalyst for growth. It is a place where kids can feel safe being themselves and accepted for who they are.
