Camp is an ideal environment for a child to learn, grow and have fun. At camp, children are safe, secure, healthy, active and happy. They develop friendships that last a lifetime.
Guided and supported by caring leaders who are excellent role models, campers acquire hard skills to enjoy in a lifetime of leisure pursuits. Campers are encouraged to be co-operative, caring, tolerant and respectful – qualities which benefit them beyond camp. They also learn to become more independent and self-confident, they develop leadership skills and acquire an appreciation and respect for nature.
Camp Director and Globe & Mail columnist Joanne Kates wrote about the benefits of summer camp in her article, “The camp sent you home a ‘new’ kid. Here’s how to keep him that way.” (August 23, 2012).
