Children, aged 7-16, congregate in this wonderful haven where they take a break from the challenging lives they face at such young ages. We provide therapy through FUN. Our campers take part in a balanced program that includes, physical activity, healthy eating, creative arts, self-esteem boosting, relationship building, and relaxation.

You will grow as a person and gain skills. You will have just as much fun as the kids in a carefree, welcoming, and relaxing environment.
