Camp Mission & Philosophy:
Campus Kids is a community of people who are diverse in our backgrounds, interests and abilities, but who share a common set of values about children and how we should live together in this camp community.
We believe that every person is unique and should be loved and affirmed as she/he is.
We believe that the positive role models provided by camp counselors can be one of the most important influences in a child’s life.
We believe that everything we do in camp makes a difference in the lives of our campers.
We believe in camp and we feel lucky to be a part of this remarkable experience.
