Authenticity

We encourage campers to be their authentic selves and embrace who they are. Our camp is a place where everyone is accepted and celebrated for their individuality. We believe in nurturing self-confidence and self-expression, allowing campers to shine as their true selves.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is more than just being present in the moment; it’s about being mindful of others and the environment. We teach campers to treat each other with respect and kindness, creating a harmonious and compassionate community. Additionally, we instill a deep appreciation for nature, teaching campers to be mindful of our planet and its conservation.

Pride, for us, means creating a safe and accepting space where campers can express themselves freely, knowing that they are loved and valued for who they are.
