At Ascend, we believe that camp should be fun. However, deeper, more meaningful experiences happen to a child at camp. There are incomparable opportunities for education in living, for the development of attitudes, habits and values. These hidden lessons in living are the result of intimate day-to-day cabin life shared with other children of the same age, under the guidance of sympathetic and understanding leaders. It is a tremendous responsibility that we undertake when we ask you to entrust your child to our care, a trust that is the focus of all that we do. The Directors maintain a close personal contact with each camper and counselor. Parents are often surprised to find that the Directors know what is happening to each child day by day in an effort to ensure them a happy and successful summer. The Director’s cabin sits in the center of camp over looking the entire waterfront and the open door policy to all campers and staff provides a welcoming homelike setting away from home.
