The Roughing It Experience for 1st Time Campers

We are dedicated to making camp safe, fun, and fulfilling for every child. There is sometimes a transition period when a child starts a brand new experience like camp. If your camper is not enjoying camp, we ask that you work with us proactively and your camper attend at least the first five days of camp. Please call our office to talk with our staff so we can work together to make camp a successful experience for your child. Tips for New Campers »
