- The Spaulding Experience
The Spaulding program frames its experience on the belief that a camper can build positive confidence through skill development. The ability to gain a new skill, overcome a fear, achieve a goal, or refine a skill gives a camper the feeling of accomplishment that will transfer back to their lives outside of camp.
Our skills classes and goal setting program allows us to track a campers successes in order to ensure he, she, or they are growing as an individual at camp. Counselors will talk with your camper at the beginning of their time with us to set goals to accomplish and skills to learn that will transfer back to their lives outside
of camp. Throughout their time with us, our staff will work alongside your camper to achieve those goals and gain that feeling of accomplishment by the end of the session.
Throughout the camp experience, campers will be given the ability to find something that they are passionate about within our program offering. Our skill development classes will help campers learn new skills and aid in the creation of life long interests.
