JillCamp provides a positive opportunity for growth that should not be underestimated. For this reason, camp can be an integral part of a child’s educational and social development. For the first time, kids leave their homes and deal with peers who may have different values or behaviors. They learn to make choices for themselves and to negotiate and resolve conflict. They learn to deal with stress in a socially acceptable manner. They learn to assess and differentiate between appropriate and inappropriate behavior and in this way ultimately gain a stronger sense of self. And camp provides the backdrop for this personal growth in a safe and secure environment.

So how do you find a summer overnight program for your son or daughter that will successfully support these opportunities for positive development? Why not explore many options at once by attending a camp fair!

Summer Opportunities Fair on Sunday, February 8th at Skirball Cultural Center , 2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd, LA from 11 am – 2 pm.

Take advantage of the opportunity to meet representatives from an array of overnight camps and programs.
