#Thanks to Camp...research, stories and more.

What does a summer camp experience really give your child?

As a new parent to the summer camp experience, you may be asking yourself this question in nervous anticipation of sending your child to camp. Is camp really worth it? Well, we think so and so do so many others. Hear the research, stories, experiences and much more. 

Let us introduce you to, a website dedicated to helping parents and campers understand the positive impact of summer camp. There's no doubt that kids will say camp is a fun place, but that's just the beginning of what you can expect. The website will help guide parents and campers in understanding all the different and proven positive outcomes of summer camp.

For example:

  • According to research, 67% of campers report experiencing positive growth in their independence, personal development and self-confidence. 
  • According to research, 90% of campers find that camp life benefits the development of intrapersonal awareness and allows them to learn tolerance, patience, and the value of teamwork and cooperation.

As Camp Directors, we give #Thanks to Camp every day. Camp is a place that defines who we are, and allows us to fulfil our passions for working with kids and providing them opportunities for growth and development. Running a summer camp is a huge undertaking, but the benefits we get to witness on a daily basis, make it 100% worth it. 

We invite you to give camp a chance, and come see what it's all about.
