benefits of summer camp. Experiencing life at camp yourself as a child,
you know the profound positive effects that still matter to you as an
adult, and you also know that you want the same thing for your own kids.
But if you didn’t go to camp as a child, you may not realize just how good
the experience is for children. You may not know why so many parents are
committed to sending their kids to camp. Please visit us at one of our
Open Houses – every Saturday and Sunday from 11 AM to 3 PM (February
thru June). No appointments are necessary. Please visit http://www.crestwoodcountryday.com/ or http://www.facebook.com/crestwoodcamp for more info. We look forward to meeting you!
