We know that entering a new community can be hard for even the most extroverted person. Campfires are one of our favorite ways to help welcome new campers and counselors join our extended camp family, and help make sure they know our community's norms, values and traditions. This short video is a look into what takes place at our brother-sister summer camps' campfires, and why they have such meaning for our campers and staff.
Would you like to see some of the fun and excitement we had during the Opening Day of Camp this year?
During the school year the most common questions we get from our Camp parents relate to their child's social and emotional growth. As hard as it may try, school is just not as fun and exciting as 7 weeks at overnight camp, and navigating the ins and outs of social life during elementary, middle and high school is never as easy as when you are away for the summer with your camp friends. So quite regularly we get asked about how to help a young person who is struggling with peers relationships, including bouts of social cruelty.
