Why Red Pine
A treasure of girlhood and a foundation for life
A camp experience plays a special and unique role in the growth and development of a child in today’s world. It provides opportunities that cannot be found anywhere else.
At Red Pine, a girl can step outside of her fast paced everyday routine and experience life and relationships in a brand new context. She can remake herself if she desires, try on different aspects to her developing identity or simply express and expand those characteristics and behaviors which serve her well.
During activity times, she will gain specific outdoor living and athletic skills many of which may become something that she carries on into her later years. Living in a group of one’s peers provides opportunities for teachable moments that she cannot encounter at home.
Her relationship with her counselor is a new kind of relationship with an adult. Red Pine counselors understand their campers as individuals. The counselor helps, suggests, listens and guides her campers.
Being out of doors is a distinctive camp experience feature. What better opportunity for a camper to learn about her natural world and to recognize her responsibility as a steward of the earth's resources than at Red Pine?
A Red Pine camper does this all within a safe.... and fun environment.... where each and every child and adult is considered a valuable member and individual differences are respected.
