Go out there and discover this wonderfully diverse country!

What Is Camp?

Summer Camp is a big part of American culture. There are more than ten thousand summer camps in existence across the USA, each with their own history and traditions which have grown over many, many years. Over 10 million children attend camp each year, from the beaches of Hawaii to the mountains in Vermont…all across America!

Happy Campers

The main goal of camp is to create a fun, safe environment for children. Children are encouraged to try new activities and step out of their comfort zone in a physically and emotionally safe and supported environment. Parents entrust the camp (and counselors) with the safety of their child. Parents expect camp to be a safe, caring, nurturing environment where their child will thrive.

Diverse Groups

Campers range in age from 6 to 16, with some special needs camps also offering opportunities for young adults. You can expect campers from a vast array of backgrounds at camp. It really does make for a unique blend of cultures and personalities!

A Camp for Everyone

In this program, there is a camp to match every personality, quirk, and skill set. This applies to both campers and the staff. If you have the right attitude, there is definitely a summer camp out there for you! Don’t panic if you are not an Olympic athlete or don’t have years of teaching experience, we will coach you through the process and give you all the tools you need to succeed. If you are ready to give this experience your all and are 18 years old by June 1st, we cannot wait to work with you to make this your best summer yet!

Being a camp counselor this summer changed my life, I had an amazing time doing things that I have never expected to do before and being able to influence children’s lives at the same time that they were affecting mine. I’d like to say that I’m really thankful for everything that you guys have done for me, I had the best experience of my life and I could not have done it without your help.Summer Camp Participant
