6. Feel Super Healthy

You’re outside, moving around all day, playing sports, and participating in other various activities. All that fresh air, sunshine, and movement will have you feeling healthy and active for the start of the next school year!

7. The Summer Camp Traditions

Olympics, color war, campfires, stargazing, July 4th, s’mores, group sing, the dance off… Outside of all the regular activities there are so many camp traditions that happen every summer. Some of your fondest memories of summer will be participating in special events and traditions.

8. Life Long Friendships

Camp is a unique environment because it’s the ultimate team endeavor. Counselors are surrounded by people who are like-minded in many ways and come with a similar appetite for adventure. On camp departure day counselors have a network of friendships that extend from coast to coast and around the world!
