We have been providing the Elmwood experience since 1957 to our campers and families. We are about our campers, our staff, our program and our mission.
Our BeliefThe relationships that children form with each other and with our staff provide the foundation for the Elmwood experience. It is through these relationships and active participation in our program that we learn about ourselves and others. Elmwood 10Our Elmwood 10 are a set of specific objectives we have for each camper. These goals are understood by our staff and are the foundation of our camp program. Our PlaceOur Place has been built with children in mind.
