  • My child has never been away from home, will he/she get homesick?
    Occasionally, homesickness may be an issue for some campers especially as they are adjusting to the camp schedule and meeting new people. Our experienced and dedicated staff help campers adjust by creating an inclusive, friendly, family-like atmosphere at camp. We provide clear and open communication, play many introductory and trust-building games which encourage friendships among campers, and check-in with campers regularly throughout the day and over mealtimes. Each camper is also assigned to a specific counselor who is attentive to their individual needs. Further, camp staff meets daily to discuss any camper-related concern and works together to better the camper’s experience. This approach has minimized homesickness amongst our campers and at the end of camp, campers often are not ready to go home!
