The Secret To Character Camp’s Success
Over the past three decades of working with kids, we have learned the key to impacting them deeply: you first build a trusted relationship with them. Camping is at the heart of what we do because solid relationships are formed and nurtured at camp (air-conditioned lodges with delicious, hot meals). But not just any old retreat will do—retreats have to be skillfully crafted to include all the right elements and exclude all the wrong ones.

Our retreats are the best of the best
- A Protective Environment.
From the very first moment with us, kids get the message that they are in a safe place, both physically and emotionally. We do not tolerate bullying, abuse or anti-sociable behavior in any form.
- A High-Expectation Environment.
We don’t have a ton of rules. We clearly communicate our core values that every child is expected to uphold. From chaperones to campers, good character defines us.
- A VIP Environment.
At Character Camp, the kids are the center of the universe. Every child is the favorite! Every child is honored, affirmed and a special person.
- A Firm Environment.
At heart, children want to know that adults are strong and firmly in control. We are caring protectors and kind providers with appropriate solid boundaries that give children a reassuring sense of order and security.
- A Positive Environment.
Our chaperones are hand-picked to model character traits that prepare children for success. There is always a good number of returning campers who are eager to model what they have learned in previous camps and training sessions. From start to finish, your child will be surrounded by positive influences.
- Relevant Teaching.
Our certified teachers are masters in their profession. They are skilled at developing age-appropriate curriculum, presenting interesting lessons with memorable illustrations and props. Creative character-building games are always a part of the rich experience.
- Free of Distraction.
Leave the electronics behind—they will not be missed! No telephones, television, ipods or gameboys—just the beauty of creation, the music of nature and the old fashioned joys of making new friends—and fresh ideas on who we can become.
- Fun-filled Environment.
At Character Camp, every day begins with eyes wide with anticipation! We have a reputation to uphold: “Where fun-filled memories are teachable moments that shape the character and the soul!” Every camp is different and unique. From supervised horseback riding to canoes and go-karts and rock climbing and pristine swimming pools and banana boats and miniature golf and high-energy theme parties, there is always fun in the air and always an unforgettable experience!
Why do parents and educators choose Character Camp again and again? Because they have come to know that our tag line is true, “We Work Wonders With Kids!”
