The program is designed to mainstream all children including those with special needs. It is non-competitive with emphasis on group and team building. No activity is forced but all are encouraged. Fun is emphasized at all times.
Swimming, boating, fishing, sports, arts and crafts, hikes, games, campfires, skits, nature walks and an opportunity to meet and interact with many other kampers are all part of each week's activities.
Staff members come from several countries, as well as college students, Circle K and Key Club members from the United States. All staff members have been trained to deal with children of all ages. There are many staff on site who are trained in American Red Cross First Aid, CPR and Lifeguarding.
