My daughter spent 4 great summers at camp. This experience away from home helped her grow, become more independent, improve her self esteem and even acquire leadership skills. I loved the fact that at camp, away from mom and dad, she had the opportunity to try new activities that otherwise she might not have dare to do. She learned to water ski on one ski and has become a fanatic skier. She also took some golf classes which were amazing and she loved all the activities played with her peers. Gery fell in love with her counselors. They were always really sweet with the girls. I believe the counselors have as much fun as the campers. Hahahaha.
