WHAT PARENTS SAY
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.
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 Fitch, and the YMCA in general, have a solid reputation and good reviews. This camp with its large terrains and location on Lake Erie to offer everything that we were looking for in our son’s camp experience. Overall, this was a very positive camp experience for our son, with many fun memories.
Camp has been a great chance for her to totally be herself. No one has any preconceived notions about who she is. She totally came out of her shell last year at camp, after not being so sure if she wanted to attend. There was never a question about if she would attend again. She just loved it.
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.
