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.
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.
Alex has enjoyed each year. He is enthusiastic as camp approaches and looks forward to the adventure, new activities and friendships. As an only child, I love that he adapts to being part of a larger group. I like that the days are full and no electronics are around. The fact that he plans his own schedule and is independent is a big plus.
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.
