Sally arrives at camp, excited to begin her day. She is greeted by warm and friendly counselors, who guide her to her place at Gully. She is entertained with songs, jokes, games, and cheers. Sally grows more confident and can hardly contain her enthusiasm as she heads to her unit. Her morning is filled with music, art, games, and swimming lessons. She is able to choose her afternoon activities and may venture into a sport she has never played! So many choices, new friends, and so much fun!

Ben, a senior camper, begins his day in woodworking. From there he travels to cooking, something he has never done before, and later he plays in a rock band. His afternoon provides a variety of activities from which he can choose. Ben is excited to take some risks and try something new, like ceramics! Next week he will travel off campus and spend two nights learning about the great outdoors.

These are just sample scenarios of the possibilities that await your child at Green Acres Camp, a camp that provides the convenience of a day camp with the off-campus experience of a sleep-away camp. A camp that fosters creativity, offers choices, develops friendships, and is fun!

Summer camp is an opportunity for kids to spend time in a quality environment where they not only learn new skills, but they learn about themselves. Working and playing with other kids help them to discover who they are, and how to get along with others. In an essay to parents about the importance of camp, Jeff  Merhige says, “camp is a gift we can give our children that they will benefit from and remember forever. If ever there was a time when the world needed a generation of future leaders who understood the intricacies of living in a community, having tolerance, and being open—that time is now.” See more at http://www.acacamps.org/resource-library/camping-magazine/why-world-needs-summer-camp-essay-parents#sthash.TLQEzTvH.

The time to send your child to camp is now. We hope to see your child at Green Acres Camp this summer when we will celebrate our 50th year of providing a quality camp for children!

Green Acres; it’s the place to be!
