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 for a camper starting 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.
