Survey Says Camp is Great!

Children, Nature Center, Summer Nature Experience

The American Camp Association surveyed 5,000 families about summer programs for kids.  The results:

Campers Say…

Camp helped me make new friends. (96%)
Camp helped me to get to know kids who are different from me. (93%)
The people at camp helped me feel good about myself. (92%)
At camp, I did things I was afraid to do at first. (74%)

Parents Say…

My child gained self-confidence at camp. (70%)
My child continues to participate in some of the new activities he or she learned at camp. (63%)
My child remains in contact with friends made at camp. (69%) 

At CEED, we believe our Summer Nature Experience for kids in grades 1-7, and our Leadership and Conservation Program for teens, provide all these benefits and more.  Many of our repeat attendees say they look forward to seeing their friends from other school districts each summer.

Full-day and half-day enrollment is continuing, but some weeks are nearly full.  Enroll your children today.
