Drew had a blast making new friends. I believe he was challenged to do different and new activities. He was very proud of himself with his experience with archery. He had a great time and was recruiting friends for next year as soon as we returned home.

Drew's Mom

This was my son's first experience at a sleep away camp. He had a great time, and is eager to go away to camp again! He was able to make new friends and participate in activities that he loves. He was also able to feel a sense of accomplishment. I feel that the camp experience has given him more confidence.
