campers, ages 8-12, enjoy activities from swimming, sports and outdoor adventure to music and art classes. 

Counselors and campers build a sense of community with cheers, camp carnivals, and s’mores around a campfire.

My counselors help me with everything – they are the best! Yesterday, I won an award for going in the pool even though I was a little nervous, but I ended up having so much fun! My favorite part about camp is everything! If I was giving advice to someone coming for the first time I would say to try and make new friends!

This is my first summer here. I like it because we do a lot of different things – my favorite activities are the pool and doing art! I really like my counselors because they teach us to be nice to each other.

This is my first time at this camp. Guitar has been my favorite activity – I had never played before! The counselors are fun. They taught me how to be caring and helped me play soccer and go hiking.

The Blavatnik Family and Warner Group Center for Music
