Many of us are lucky to have fond memories of summers spent at camp from our childhoods: maybe we remember making great friends, learning how to do new things, or immersing ourselves in what we loved to do already. Maybe we remember connecting directly with nature, feeling the grass under our feet and being by the water and out in the fresh air. Those of us who attended summer camp as children were able to explore new opportunities, and we grew and changed through these summer camp experiences.
It was an ADVENTURE.
Kids today live in a complicated world: it’s fast-paced and ruled by technology. Summer is a time when kids can enjoy a different pace and develop skills that will benefit them year-round. Studies show that kids who attend high-quality summer camp programs build relationship skills, develop independence, and broaden their world view, all of which transfers to life beyond camp.
However, the cost of summer camp can be a barrier to families.
