Phrases like, “it takes a village to raise a child” aren’t just metaphors. People have always lived in groups, and only very recently are trending towards smaller and smaller social circles. And this is having an impact on our kids. While parents are critical to the development of their children, they can also act as a block for the diverse experiences and relationships that lead to a well-rounded child.

At camp, your child will experience growth and learning in a community, all while building independence, confidence, grit, and much more!
