  1. IMG_4640Get Physically Active – Camp provides an opportunity to be outside and active. Kids can try a new sport or, improve their skills in a sport they already play. Camp lets kids take a break from computers, video games, texting and become more active.
  2. Develop Social Skills – Camp teaches children to be better communicators and to work together as part of a team. It offers children a sense of belonging and allows them to establish social skills that will help him or her have respect for others.
  3. Build Confidence – Camp helps kids build self-confidence and self-esteem. When kids are at camp parents aren’t there to help them meet new people or try new activities. Learning how to play tennis, or taking up art makes a child realize how capable he or she is to learn and grow.
