CAMPER SELF-CONFIDENCE FREE WITH TUITION
Because we believe strongly that an essential component of a successful day camp is the feeling of community, we prefer not to split, pro-rate or break up the above sessions. Ultimately this factor is appreciated by campers who are assured that with only 1 camper turnover, strong relationships, and therefore strong camp community, can be firmly established.
