Sending a child to summer camp is a tremendous act of faith by parents. At Camp Laurel, we take that responsibility very seriously and encourage our campers to develop new interests and skills as they discover new strengths and build their self-esteem. We maintain an environment that encourages safety and reinforces a positive self-image.
Preparing for Camp:
The Laurel experience is about creating amazing lifelong friendships and memories. Our ability to set each individual camper up for success and deliver a growth-filled, safe and fun summer is something we take great pride in.
Arriving at Camp:
When you step off the bus at Camp Laurel, you will be greeted by Jem and Debbie. The enthusiasm and energy makes the arrival exciting, and you are also embraced with warmth, high fives, fist bumps and hugs and immediately connected to your counselors and cabinmates. When you enter your cabin, your bed and area will already be set up and unpacked. This provides the feeling of walking into “your” home, with the familiarity of seeing your bedding and personal belongings already set up. Introductions, games and fun starts immediately, followed by a tour of camp. Our opening campfire is always a highlight as we gather as one to officially begin the season.
