Campership

Thinking about sending a kid to camp this summer?

The American Camp Association says that parents cite the following as the most important reasons for sending their children to camp:
– Camp helps build self-confidence and self-esteem
– Camp is a safe environment
– Camp is a place to build social skills and make friends

 

 

 

The camp experience enriches lives and changes the world.

Camp provides children with a community of caring adults, who nurture experiential education that results in self-respect and appreciation for human value.

All of the outcomes – self-identity, self-worth, self-esteem, leadership, and self-respect – build personal competencies. These personal competencies are reflected in the four “C’s” of the camp community: compassion, contribution, commitment, and character!

For years, campers’ parents have reported that when their children return home from camp they are more caring, understand the importance of giving, are more equipped to stand up for what they know is right and are willing to be more responsible. These are the qualities that will help build a successful nation and a civil society.
