Summer is upon us, what do you have planned? Family vacations, spend time with friends, relax at home, sports, so many options! With such busy schedules how do you choose to send your child to camp for 2 weeks!?
You know we can think of a million reasons to send your child to camp. We truly believe in the power of summer camp, but this blog post has been sparked by you, the parents of our campers!

As a camp it helps give insight into parents’ minds and really see what they expect to get out of Camp Twin Creeks.
