Specialized three week programs are also offered for rising high school freshman, sophomores and juniors; Counselor In Training/Leadership Development Program and Teen Adventure Camp. While our main goal is for campersto have fun and perfect their talents we also focus on making new friends, renewing friendships and building healthy relationships. Friendships give children the ability to improve their social skills, gain confidence, communicate effectively, and gain respect for all people.Selecting a camp is as important as selecting a family physician or place of worship. When making your camp selection, both child and adult should have a serious conversation about their goals and expectations, making certain each will be comfortable with the decision, therefore helping to ensure a successful, enjoyable experience. Retreats & conferences accepted.
