Buddies Not Bullies interactive “YOU-Niquely Social” Camp celebrates individuality by helping children in our community understand that we can be different, have different ideas, come from different kinds of families, and still get along.

Campers are grouped according to grade level to play games and participate in activities that help kids learn about leadership, making friends, including others, personal differences, and other helpful social strategies such as taking turns, personal space, and cooperation.

Mark your calendar! Don’t miss out on this “YOU-Niquely Social” experience because kids will have to wait until next summer to participate again!

Here’s what some parents have to say about our camp:

“Kids look up to older kids… nice to see a positive presence in attitude and encouragement! Thanks for such an awesome time. Boys got a lot out of the games and stories told!”

“My children loved it! My son never talks about his day at school (I always have to ask), he immediately opened up about how much fun he had and explained about the different “games” played.”

“My boys have NEVER talked about any camp they have attended except this one!!!  When the few days of camp were over, it was sad to them because they enjoyed being in such a fun learning environment!!”

“Everyone is special in some way!  As a parent you try your absolute best to bring up well-rounded children.  “Buddies Not Bullies” enlightened the idea that different is not bad.  Being a buddy is much more fun than a bully!  My 7 year old has said those famous words many times over this past year:  “Be a buddy, not a bully!!!”.  In fact, he even proudly wears his camp t-shirt to school!  It is a great feeling to have such an awesome resource right in our neighborhood.”
