Going Beyond Basic Needs. 

Our job is to care for campers, and we mean that in more than the basic sense. As campers needs change, we work to stay up to date on trends, best practices, and ideas and bring them to you. We want to care for kids, connect with kids, and do more.

What's Restorative Justice?

A lot of our resources and blogs in this section reference Restorative Justice. So what is it? Restorative Justice is a different way of seeing conflict and harm. The goal is to heal harm, mitigate future harm, and build community. It starts with the belief that conversation is the root of change and understanding.

We've got resources to build community, meet campers needs, address and mitigate harm, and more. Whenever possible, read the need and meet the need. Each camper is different. Each group is different. There's not always a right answer.
