WHAT PARENTS SAY
I have very fond memories of summer camp as a child and I want that for our kids. We love that Camp Fitch is on Lake Erie and that you offer activities that allow the kids to enjoy the lake. We're happy about the values that are taught and followed at Camp Fitch, and feel that our kids return each year a little better than when they arrived.
Camp allows my daughter a time and place to unwind and get away from the everyday things in today's fast paced life. She can unplug, expend energy, and enjoy the outdoors with all of its natural challenges and beauties. In addition, the very spiritual nature of the camp, the devotions and the ceremonies have left an imprint on her heart!
I think it's a great experience to be away from the city, cell phones, TV, and anything related to electronic. Camp Fitch is a great outdoor experience and it's also a great time for children to experience being away from home, gaining some independence, and learning how to follow the lead of another adult besides the ones their every day world.
Camp Fitch is a family tradition now. It helps the kids develop independence and self-esteem. They are able to survive without their parents and enjoy themselves immensely. In school, teachers can tell kids who have had these kinds of experiences. It adds richness to their character.
Kyle has come out of his shell during the three years that he has attended the camp. Because of the Leadership Development program he has started being more involved with teaching at church and volunteering for mentoring programs through the school system. He very much wants to spend the summer at camp next summer as a counselor.
