A word from our Directors

Counting Down to Camp
Saturday, 20 February 2016

Camp... for body, spirit and mind!  We've always known that camp is good for kids- and now there is science to prove it!  Camp certainly is a time of stretching ourselves physically as campers try new activities and build skills.  It also provides a safe place for children to build independence while having fun.  Tina Payne Bryson, PhD was recently quoted in the American Camp Association article about how the brain develops and the benefits summer camp provides. It turns out that camp, by providing activities that challenge children while holding their interest and making it fun, builds the middle pre-frontal cortex! This is one way that "grit" is built into the brain. Experiences change the way the brain is wired. Camp experiences like overcoming fear, mastering a skill, learnging to be flexible and making new friends help change the architecture of the brain.  How exciting when something we love is great for us too!

As you consider a summer camp or are preparing for another exciting summer at CRL, we are full steam ahead on 2016 plans, thanks to Director Nonnie Preuss and Assistant Director of Programs Whitney Atkinson who are working closely with Claudia Haney, our Director of Administration.  Hopefully, you are checking out the pictures, videos, and updates on our social media sites so that you can practically smell the campfires and taste the s'mores.  We are also happy to announce the return of many of our counselors who are already getting excited for summer fun.
