Back to School Wisdom

We often hear from parents that the kids we send home from camp are more polite, respectful, independent, and helpful around the house than the kids they sent us a month or 2 ago, but sadly, these effects seem to be short-lived and by December they seem to be back to their old ways. THIS […]

It was beautiful to watch the lake full of capable campers captaining sailboats, soloing canoes, rolling kayaks, and rail riding on windsurfers. It struck me again how much our campers have grown, both in their physical skills and emotionally in their weeks at camp. […]

Mini Camp!

What do you call too much cuteness at one camp? Mini Camp of course! Today we had 60(!) kids between the ages of 6 and 10 arrive to get a taste of Arowhon, and it’s been a breeze for me as our campers are doing a better job selling camp than I ever could. We […]
