“We choose this camp because it is where I went as a kid and I loved it. My children have grown to love it as much as I have and cannot wait to get there. The thing that makes it great is that it is a true summer camp. It is all about getting back to nature and getting to spend a week away from your parents and make your own memories and experiences.” -K.W. former camper
