CAMP WILL OPEN ON June 19, 2023!

Camp SAM Culture

While we offer all the fun, traditional day camp activities like swimming, archery, GAGA and rock climbing, our program goes well beyond that. Our staff members are FAR from just babysitters! We prefer to call them Youth Development Specialists. Our engaging, genuinely caring and professional team of counselors create a nurturing environment where campers feel safe and supported to step outside of their comfort zone, challenge themselves with new adventures and make new friends.

At Camp SAM, we have three core values that guide everything we do. We believe strongly in these and intentionally interweave them into all of our camp activities. These commonly held beliefs and commitments guide our organization to achieve the Vision and Mission of Camp SAM. These core values guide our decisions, activities, actions, training, and expectations of campers and staff. Each one is connected and related to each other. They are concepts we live by every single day at Camp SAM.

Camp SAM provides children with long-term benefits and essential learning experiences. We provide a fun-filled family atmosphere, where kids can expand their range of coping strategies through activities intentionally designed to enhance learning. Campers grow and learn each day with us as they face challenges such as getting along with a new group of peers, learning how to ask for help from others, or taking manageable amounts of risks without a parent following them.

Camp SAM Culture

In a less pressured atmosphere such as camp, children can explore and develop their competencies in the following areas:

  • Relationship Skills
  • Confidence
  • Creativity
  • Communication Skills
  • Critical Thinking & Problem-Solving Skills
  • Leadership
  • Responsibility
  • Physical Activity
  • Sense of Belonging
