Child development is the most significant ingredient in a healthy camp experience. This is why our staff is the real secret to our success. Our experienced counselors, chosen from all around the globe, are known for their personal warmth and ability to care for each child as an individual. Each counselor is a role model for our children, promising lasting friendships and guidance. Their devotion to the children is truly reciprocated by the children's love of them.
