The Camp Sturtevant experience is an outstanding way to keep your child active and engaged throughout their summer break from school. Camp will give your child new skills, memories, values, and friendships that will last a lifetime.



To put others before yourself, to love others, to be sensitive to the well-being of others, to help others.



To tell the truth, to act in such a way that you are worthy of trust, to have integrity, to make sure your choices match up with your values.



To treat others as you would have them treat you, to value the worth of every person including yourself, to be cordial even if you disagree with someone.



To do what you should, to do what is right, to be accountable for your behavior and obligations.
