 Yes! Summer may seem far off, but summer camp planning starts way in advance. Now is a good time to research camp options in your area and see what fun summer adventure awaits your child.

Summer camp provides structured fun, awesome opportunities to try new things, and sometimes even trips to local sites. Children develop independence at camp as they learn how to interact with peers who may be different from them.

Campers also learn to make new friends and cope in new situations. All of these experiences help boost self-esteem and confidence. Summer camp also helps kids get outdoors, get comfortable in nature, and keep active.

Camp is a place where children can explore their interests and make lasting memories while participating in music, science, art, nature studies, sports, and other enriching activities.  

If you are looking for a camp for the children in your life, be sure to consider a camp that is accredited by the American Camp Association. ACA Accreditation means that your child’s summer camp cares enough to undergo a thorough peer review of its operation — from staff qualifications and training to emergency management.

Don’t forget, join us on November 12 and show your camp pride!
