First Time Campers

Why send your child to overnight camp?

Whether it’s overnight or just for the day, making the choice to send your child to camp is a very important decision for a family. Being separated from home can be a very enriching experience for a child, helping them become more independent. In a world that is increasingly more dependent on making connections through electronics and the internet, camp can be a great way to help a child make stronger social connections with other kids their age. Families see Camp Cory as a very safe community that allows their children to connect with each other on a deeper level.
