"Wilderness Summer Camps for the children and teens are top notch! Truly an old fashioned sleep away camp experience and technology/phone break for them. My 3 look forward to it every year, they've made friends and great memories!"

"The activities were endless no one was ever board! This is just some of stuff we did: mini golf, zip lining, rock wall climbing, kayaking, shuffleboard, swimming, hiking down beautiful trails. Sooooo much fun!! We go on vacation a couple of times a year and tend to cruise mostly i was so happy when my kids told me that they were having the time of their lives. "

- Carolyn Radle (Google review)

"This place is amazing - great staff constantly upgrading facilities, clean, great camp food, beautiful conference center and surroundings. I am a former camp director who lives in the area and can assure you that this place is top notch. I wouldn't have sent my kids here the last 4 years in a row if it wasn't."
