TFS Makes a Difference
Camp Explore is special place for children who are six to ten years old. It’s an extraordinary environment where children find a nurturing and supporting atmosphere that allows the child to grow, socialize, exercise, and spend time with role models that so many at-risk kids desperately need today.
Throughout each activity, the Campers learn about the delicate environment that surrounds them each day while they subliminally develop new physical, emotional, and social skills. In fact, it’s not uncommon for the Campers to bring their new appreciation for life back to their home life which, over time, strengthens the entire family.
Although the days are filled with activities, the Camp Explore environment is one that offers each child the opportunity to share their thoughts with other kids. Be it by a camp fire, at a Camp sleep-over or just hiking through the woods, the Campers are given the freedom to share their hopes and dreams within a caring and comfortable environment.
