Campers will be able to meet other children and youth who are going through some of the same issues and be able to learn from each other. Campers are assigned to cabin families based on age and gender.

Our enthusiastic and kid-loving camp staff lead our campers’ experience to ensure everybody has an emotionally and physically safe summer camp experience. They come from all over the US and all over the world to be part of something great!
