Striving for the good and just is essential in our household. When selecting summer camp options we were thrilled to find a camp that nurtured those values. Our child learned valuable skills in how to read and analyze the news, skills he keeps up by now reading the New York Times each morning! Not many 10 year olds ask for their own subscription. Our child still offers us occasional lectures on issues and ideas he discussed during camp. He feels empowered to be an engaged citizen and excited to work to make the world a better place for all.

It gives the students a very good sense of important issues as they have the chance to practice writing and talking about those.

Because it is actually fun and really teaches you how to argue your point and how to make a difference through your writing.
