My favourite part about camp is the enthusiasm everyone has, and how we all make so many friends no matter what. Also, the food is amazing! -Camper, 2016

“I believe sincerely in the educational, social and recreational values of residential camping. Camp provides an ideal environment for a young woman to grow and mature; feeling valued, confident and capable. She learns cooperation, independence and an appreciation for her natural surroundings. Each summer she creates lasting memories and develops lifelong friendships. The best part about this is that she has a whole lot of fun in the process!”
