What makes camp so great: Camp to me is a beautiful refuge from all of the many distractions of the modern world - it’s a place where fun means moving your body, challenging your mind, overcoming your fears, and relearning how it is we are meant to interact with one another in a genuine and meaningful way. As a result, campers and counselors alike leave camp as better humans than when they arrived!
