. . . on the results of summer camps confirmed many of our assumptions.

In this study conducted by the American Camp Association, researchers found that summer camps increase self-esteem and confidence. Consider the following statement:
 
“Self-esteem does not come from empty praise, but from feeling competent; from having success experiences; from making genuine contributions. Camps are uniquely suited to provide these opportunities to young people.”
 
What about 6 months later?
In this same study the American Camp Association followed up with the parents 6 months later and found…
 
More than 96% of parents agreed with the statement, “The people at camp helped my child feel good about him/herself and 92% of campers agreed that people at camp helped them feel good about who they were.”

Giving kids the time of their lives can change their futures.

Everywhere

Everywhere – from east to west – praise the name of the Lord. Psalms 113:2 There is a lot of talk today about what unites and divides us as people.

This is Why We’re Here

On this particular Friday, twelve pairs of eyes looked down at Onyx and I from the arena grandstands. As I sat on Onyx’s sturdy frame, I looked back at the twelve campers. My mind flashed to Monday, the first day of camp. There was one camper who had been scared to get on her horse. However, after some reassurance and coaxing she had said she would try to ride. “I am so proud of you for pushing through your fear! ...
