Why Summer Camp Matters

Summer camp provides a safe environment to try new activities, live with new people, make new friends, eat new foods, and sometimes deal with homesickness. It is in this time, out of their comfort zone, that children develop life skills, independence, and self-confidence. At camp, kids learn to express themselves. We often hear “Camp allows me to be myself. At camp, I belong.”

Why Camp Woodstock is Special

Two things set Camp Woodstock apart from other summer camps. First is our culture, which is driven by our CHoRR (pronounced “core”) values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. The CHoRR values are how we connect with campers, and how campers learn to connect with others.

Second is our counselors, who are passionate and committed to your child’s well-being during his or her Camp Woodstock experience. Nearly every one of our counselors was once a camper at Camp Woodstock, and has come up through the ranks of our selective and rigorous leadership training program. Each counselor is an excellent role model for your child.

We are known as The Friendship Camp for good reason: Campers have been making lifelong friendships at Camp Woodstock since 1922!
