What we're all about...

Campers who attend our camp programs not only have the opportunity to do more - climb a 40 foot climbing tower, learn to ride a mini-bike, canoe down the Delaware, volunteer on a community project; but also to be more - overcome fears, gain self-confidence, a greater appreciation for nature, and the sense of satisfaction that comes from helping others.Our focus is on programming that is progressive and intentional. Progressive programming means that campers will find ways to build on the skills they learn, and explore a wider variety of activities as they return year after year, and even session after session. Intentional programming means that everything we do has a purpose - of course the activities are fun, but they also teach campers something about teamwork, sportsmanship, friendship, and self-confidence.Our staff are positive role models. We select mature, patient, skilled, and responsible staff after an interview process including background and reference checks.
