It provides your child with a rich and wholesome summer vacation of fun and excitement along with friendship and meaningful educational experiences.

Our experienced counselors are known for their personal warmth and ability to care for each child as an individual. Each counselor is a role model for our children, promising them friendship which will last forever! Their love for the children is surpassed only by the children’s love for them.
