Camp Shady Brook measures success in several ways, one of which is the number of friendships it helps create. We want each child to forge lifelong relationships with their fellow campers, creating relationships where they can be their true selves.
Camp Shady Brook also measures success in terms of each camper’s personal growth. Whether it’s developing a new sense of independence or becoming more respectful, responsible, caring, or honest, we work to make every camper proud of who they are and who they can become. Campers take on a host of new challenges and learn new skills, such as how to shoot a bow and arrow, how to ride a horse and how to scale a climbing wall. With each skill, they build a sense of confidence in their own ability to achieve and excel, and they leave camp stronger and more self-assured than they were before – and that sounds like success to us.
