Many of the teens we serve do not have the opportunity to leave their own neighborhoods, yet alone have the life changing experience of sleepaway camp. At our camp, the teens transform their realities.
The teens bond with one another and caring adults. They do this in a beautiful and peaceful environment with green grass and fresh air – and importantly, away from the daily stresses of their lives. It is this nourishing environment and natural camp setting where our youth engage in hours of fun-filled activities, as they play outdoors in a natural playground. They also simply have a great time and memorable experience playing a sport they love, with their friends, in a new and refreshing environment.
During their downtime, the campers enjoy all of the activities that camp her to offer such as rock wall climbing, ziplining, dance, arts and crafts, archery, music and more! Some of the teens will even learn to swim for the first time while others will take their first stroll in the forest.
After a fun-filled and enriching day, you would think the campers were ready to wind down. Their fun continues into the evening as many of them build their first camp fire or sing and dance in the talent show.
Certainly all campers will experience something new in a way that will boost their self-esteem, and expand their horizons and vision for their lives.
