Camp is Awesome!

Relationships between students and staff are at the core of everything we do at Northwood. Many troubled children lack access to supportive adults because of disrupted family experiences and the strain on relationships caused by their own emotional and behavioral problems. Building supportive relationships is essential to positive youth development, a fact consistently affirmed in youth development literature. Camp builds relationships. Northwood students consistently report summer camp was their favorite experience at Northwood. Northwood staff also regularly describe camp as their most satisfying experience. The staff talk about the opportunities to build strong, positive relationships with students. Students talk about making friends and all of fun things that go along with camp. We would like to sincerely thank our generous donor family who have made this incredible experience a reality for our children. As Cody (age 12) said, “I will always remember this.”
