0 Message from the Director

Day Camp is an environment in which children can grow emotionally, socially, physically, and intellectually, with developmentally appropriate activities offered for each age group. The most important goal in our program is the promotion of a good self-image. We feel that when children feel good about themselves, their possibilities are endless. Our camping programs seek to help campers: grow personally, develop specific skills, improve personal and family relationships, become better , leaders, appreciate diversity, and HAVE FUN!
As staff members, we want to have fun with the children enrolled in camp. Our camp  activities are planned to be interactive between staff and campers. We believe that this interaction will allow staff members to have fun right alongside our campers.
In summary, the overall theme of the camp is to provide the children with the positive aspects of recreation while at the same time allowing both the campers and the staff the opportunity to interact with, and learn from, each other.
Let’s have a great summer!
