Standing the Test of Time

  • Empower campers to identify their individual strengths and to celebrate their unique personalities they bring to our camp community
  • Provide the nurturing, support and encouragement campers need to be happy and successful
  • Develop a program in which every lesson, activity and camp event relates to our character constellation and where each camper can strive to achieve their personal best
