is to involve the Girls in a variety of sports, arts and crafts, theatre, dance and other activities while they make new friends.
Length of camp

- Camp sessions run from 2 weeks to full summer.

The camps we recommend have low counselor to camper ratio's
Camper to counselor ratio is important and we find the best Girls summer camp programs have a ratio around 4:1. This allows for individual attention as well as skill development. The counselors are college students with experience in the activity they lead, and they are supervised by experienced adult teachers and parents.

The programs we recommend provide safety and supervision
Counselors are with campers all the time. Counselors are college students with expertise in the activities that they teach. Group heads and supervisors staff are all adults with many years of experience in teaching children and caring for campers. They are involved with the campers 24 hours a day. Owners and directors are on the campus and involved with campers and staff the entire summer.
Medical Conditions and Food Allergies
The camps that we refer all have doctors and nurses and are available 24 hours a day and staff the infirmary / wellness center. Children who need to take medication on a consistent basis for any reason will see the nurse and doctor for their medication at a prescribed time. Children with food allergies will be
accommodated at most camps. The parents will discuss their needs with the chef and the camp nutritionist/dietician to plan the best way to handle the child's needs. Children who are sick and need to be watched and cared for will stay overnight in the infirmary and the parents are notified. Children who are sick and need to take medication will have their parents notified and consulted with.
Safety is very important to the owners and directors of Girls summer camp programs. All camps strive to keep their camp equipment in good condition to protect the Girls.
