Our accommodations are SUPER rustic: canvas teepees/tents, mosquito nets, latrine toilets, when it rains you get wet, cell phones used during time off in the staff lounge only…are you into that? *

More important than swimming, archery, or arts and crafts are the moments we create to help our campers work through challenges, increase their ability to express themselves and manage their emotions, and learn from their mistakes. Creating this kind of community is tough! Are you up for the challenge? *
