Camp Champions:
A tradition of excellence since 1967, fantastic activities, and best-trained counselors are a few of the reasons that Camp Champions is consistently ranked among the top camps in the country, but what really sets our camp apart is the intentional community we create year after year. We believe every child has an inner Champion, and we create a loving community in which every camper can flourish. Whether they realize it or not, we push every camper to grow in character skills like independence and confidence while they are at camp. And because there is an important niche in our community for every camper to fill, we are consistently told that our campers are free to discover “the best versions of themselves.We are as committed to children and their growth as any institution or program out there, and our community is the primary way we support campers in this goal. Of course, we wouldn’t be able to create such a community if we didn’t have such a blast every day at camp! Visit http://www.campchampions.com for more information.
