While camp is a lot of fun, we take what we do seriously. We spend a significant amount of time in preparation for making the summer happen so that behind all the good times is a foundation of safety and education. All staff participate in a week-long training and orientation prior to opening day, full of workshops, formal and informal conversation and planning.

The Resources pages include much of the same background that goes in to our work, including reading and research that influences our strategies for working with kids.

"The Blog of the West Wind" is the director's blog, where he shares his thoughts about camp, conversations he's having with parents and other staff, and sometimes just a good story.
