Summer camp is more than just gathering by the fire, roasting marshmallows with friends and singing along to the sweet sounds of the guitar. Beyond mountain biking, horseback riding, waterskiing, canoeing and other fun outdoor activities, summer camp teaches valuable life skills that nurture independence and confidence. Pushed to try new things, campers break free from their comfort zones and learn to make their own decisions. On the quest to overcome obstacles, campers build a foundation to stand and grow for the rest of their lives. Year after year, summer camp paves the path to adulthood in five meaningful ways.
