Before a boy comes to camp, family workers help prepare his family for the journey at camp. During camp, they stay closely involved with the family, keeping them informed of his progress and helping them prepare for their son’s return home after graduation. But a boy’s return to home, school, and normal life can create some difficult challenges. How do they maintain and then build on the growth that he experienced at camp?
Have you ever wondered what a day at camp is like and how the daily activities at camp prepare a boy for later in life? We get a preview of the boys’ daily routine and how it helps them develop the skills they need to be successful in life. Every day is another step for each boy on the way to a productive and fulfilling life.
