Camp is needed now more than ever.
We will always remember the summer of 2020; reconnecting with friends after so long, making memories that will last a lifetime, and feeling grateful for the opportunity to share the camp experience together. Though we were often physically distant, we were closer than ever.
Current events have shown us all the importance of human connection, and we are looking forward to seeing everyone back at camp next summer. This will be our best summer ever, not because of the things we get to do at camp, but because of the people we get to experience camp with.
Give the gift of camp, and keep bright the thoughts of a warm, welcoming summer filled with friendship, fun and laughter, which are surely among the best things to look forward to in 2021.

A camp experience is unique and can have profound positive impacts on a young person’s social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. When you give a child a camp experience, you give them lifelong lessons and memories that help them navigate a successful future.
Here is further proof that camp is the ultimate holiday gift:
- Unlike toys, camp doesn’t break.
According to research from The Children’s Mutual, 41 percent of toys and presents given during the December holidays are broken by March.
- Camp boosts a child’s sense of self.
Families want their children to develop genuine confidence and an awareness of their place in the world. These are things that can’t be bought or taught — they have to grow organically. That is where camp comes in.
- Camp develops twenty-first century life skills.
Participation in programs like camp develops essential twenty-first century life skills. Where you may see a group of campers laughing and working together at a game, the youth development professional sees problem-solving and teamwork skills being enhanced.
- Camp is critical to a child’s education.
Camp is one of the oldest and finest community-based experiential education and development models in America. The natural extension of traditional education, camp is a deliberate, expanded learning environment that provides an education like no other.
- Camp is fun.
Camp gives children and youth the opportunity to just relax, have fun, and be kids. They will experience the joys of childhood in safe, nurturing setting and share new experiences with other children without the fear of failure or ridicule.
