At Camp Augusta, children see and wonder about a butterfly; they kick a stone and see how it really bounces; they talk with a friend without needing anything that whistles, buzzes, hums or electronically connects to something. Camp Augusta understands the value of non electronic, personal experiences for kids. While many camps have sessions of 250 - 500 kids plus staff, Camp Augusta is full with only about 90 campers per session. This allows the director and staff to provide each camper with meaningful individual attention, as well as for campers to know one another.
The camp environment uniquely adds to the critical family environment in several special ways. To support parents in raising healthy kids, Camp Augusta provides a safe, natural, community environment where campers learn and have fun. Counselors, who are chosen for their character and love of youth, model and enforce healthy living skills and positive values. They undergo the most extensive staff hiring and training process in the United States. Additionally, counselors write personal letters to parents about their child's camp experience for continuity and reinforcement at home.
