JAMESON RANCH CAMP


www.jamesonranchcamp.com

Jameson Ranch Camp offers an enriching and unforgettable summer experience for children and teenagers, providing a perfect blend of adventure, education, and fun in a safe and supportive environment amidst the natural beauty of the Sierra Nevada mountains. The camp operates in four two-week sessions throughout the summer, catering to kids ages 6-16. Each session is carefully crafted to provide age-appropriate activities and challenges, ensuring that campers have the opportunity to explore, learn, and grow in a setting tailored to their developmental needs.

During each two-week session, campers immerse themselves in a diverse range of programs and activities designed to spark their curiosity, foster their creativity, and cultivate their sense of adventure. Whether they're embarking on a thrilling outdoor excursion, honing their artistic skills in the crafts studio, or bonding with new friends around the campfire, campers are encouraged to step out of their comfort zones, try new things, and embrace the spirit of exploration.

Under the guidance of experienced counselors, activity specialists, and instructors, campers develop valuable life skills such as leadership, teamwork, communication, and problem-solving. They also learn to appreciate and respect the natural world, gaining a deeper understanding of ecology, conservation, and sustainability through hands-on experiences in the great outdoors.

Throughout their time at Jameson Ranch Camp, campers form lasting friendships, create cherished memories, and forge connections with mentors who inspire and empower them to reach their full potential. Whether they're conquering a challenging rock climb, performing in a talent show, or simply sharing stories and laughs with their cabin mates, campers leave Jameson Ranch Camp with a newfound sense of confidence, resilience, and belonging that stays with them long after the summer ends.


STEVE & KATE’S

www.steveandkates.com

When you trust kids, they trust themselves. Since 1980, Steve & Kate’s has put kids in charge of their own learning experience. As they try, fail, and learn on their own, they learn to trust their own judgment and tackle the challenges of an ever-changing world with creativity and confidence.

Campers choose from a variety of activities in real-time, including sewing, stop-motion animation, music, coding, sports & rec, makers crafts, baking, & more. They'll decide what they want to do and for how long.

Just like everything else at Steve & Kate’s, kids will get to choose their lunch entree daily. Most of their meals come from local vendors and are prepared just moments before lunch. They throw in snacks and the occasional frozen treat to boot!

Families can buy as many days as they’d like and use them at any time. No weekly reservations are required–just show up! Or, if you need more care, purchase a Summer Pass, which covers the whole season. If, for any reason, your plans change, they’ll automatically refund any unused Passes in full at summer’s end.

Ages: 4–12 | Lunch, snacks, and all hours (8am–6pm) included. Now, in 70+ locations! Visit steveandkates.com to learn more and to sign up.

Camp Clio
CAMP CLIO

http://campclio.org/

Empowering adoptees since 2012

July 21- August 3, 2024

Since 2012 Camp Clio has provided adopted children ages 9-14 the opportunity to enjoy all the fun of traditional summer camp while staying in cabins with other adopted children. The relaxed, safe, and non-judgmental environment of a cabin filled with other campers who are “just like me” encourages exploration of identity, family connectedness and curiosity about birth families. Counselors in the Clio cabins are either themselves adopted or have a demonstrated interest in working with adoptees (many are studying social work at university). Sharing their adoption stories with new friends, they can begin to understand that complicated feelings are perfectly normal, shared by their fellow campers, and that they are not alone.

YMCA Camp Jewell, rated the #1 sleep-away camp in CT, hosts Camp Clio in their new Clio Village, exclusively for adopted campers. The 500-acre facility, located in Colebrook, CT, is shared with the non-adopted campers who attend Camp Jewell. Swimming, archery, sports, etc. - the good “old-fashioned” camp activities and meals are shared with the entire camp population. Cabin and Village activities are exclusively with other adoptees, allowing campers to really bond. Many Clio campers have become lifelong friends.

Camp Clio is honored to continue working with the Center for Adoption Support and Education (CASE) on the adoption program for Clio campers, held during the stay-over weekend of the two-week program. Prior to campers’ arrival, all counselors in Clio cabins attend a workshop with CASE adoption certified therapists where they learn the camper adoption activities and ways to guide conversations in a positive direction. CASE’s nationally acclaimed WISE UP program is only a part of the adoption program. Adoption discussions, Adoption Bingo, Adoption Story Book creation, and CASE’s new Behind the Mask workbook are only a few of the activities led by CASE therapists.

For information and registration contact sandy@CampClio.org, (www.CampClio.org) 646-285-6237 or camp.Jewell@ghymca.org (CampJewell.org) 860-379-2782. Tiered pricing and need based financial assistance is available.

Quotes from Campers
-You can express yourself and talk to counselors and ask questions and stuff
-Everybody here is just like me
-Sometimes I feel alone but then I come here and see I’m not alone
-It’s OK to be adopted and still have fun.
-I didn’t think there were that many adopted kids but now that I’m here I see there are.
-You shouldn’t feel ashamed – it’s just how life works.

Central to all of our programs is a unique organizational philosophy that prioritizes building connections and relationships in outdoor spaces. Wild Earth nurtures the development and empowerment of youth and adults by fostering reciprocity with nature, cultivating regenerative practices, and uplifting equity and environmental justice.

At Wild Earth programs, all of the senses are engaged as participants meet plants and animals, learn wilderness skills, create natural crafts, and build deep connections with friends and inspiring adult and teen mentors. Our instructors tailor activities to the interests of the participants, fostering curiosity and guiding learning through skillful questions, opportunities for appropriate risk-taking, and empowering challenges.

We can’t wait to see you in the woods!

STEVE & KATE’S

When you trust kids, they trust themselves. Since 1980, Steve & Kate’s has put kids in charge of their own learning experience. As they try, fail, and learn on their own, they learn to trust their own judgment and tackle the challenges of an ever-changing world with creativity and confidence.

Campers choose from a variety of activities in real-time, including sewing, stop-motion animation, music, coding, sports & rec, makers crafts, baking, & more. They'll decide what they want to do and for how long.

Just like everything else at Steve & Kate’s, kids will get to choose their lunch entree daily. Most of their meals come from local vendors and are prepared just moments before lunch. They throw in snacks and the occasional frozen treat to boot!

Families can buy as many days as they’d like and use them at any time. No weekly reservations are required–just show up! Or, if you need more care, purchase a Summer Pass, which covers the whole season. If, for any reason, your plans change, they’ll automatically refund any unused Passes in full at summer’s end.

Ages: 4–12 | Lunch, snacks, and all hours (8am–6pm) included. Now, in 70+ locations! Visit steveandkates.com to learn more and to sign up.
