Did you know that camp has more of an impact on children than just as a fun escape for the summer? Here’s a short video on the benefits of sending your child to summer camp from Madeline Levine, Ph.D., who delivered this keynote speech at the 2014 annual Western Association of Independent Camps conference.

As both a member of the Western Association of Independent Camps and an ACA accredited camp, we believe in the positive power that camp has on children. We buy into this belief at Catalina Island Camps, to ensure that we cultivate an environment that provides our campers with the opportunities to grow in immeasurable ways.

Thank you to Madeline Lavine, Pd.D. and the Western Association of Independent Camps for providing this material.
