My child comes home more mature and responsible after every trip. How can so much growth happen in just one summer?

My daughter loves camp so much she is disappointed on the weekend. "Camp Combe today?" is her first waking question!

The energy! The care! The fun! Everything a kid could want.
I want to go to camp!

My favorite thing in a whole entire world is Camp Combe.

It’s hard to outgrow camp when it gets more fun every year! Your teen programs are perfect!

Service Corps, especially Habitat for Humanity, had a huge impact on my son!

This was our first summer and everything has been exactly as we
were told it would be...even better!

I'm not sure how you do it, but I don't think my boys have ever been this excited about anything!

Camp Combe is the coolest place I have ever been.

EARLY EXPEDITIONS

Early Expedition campers will have the opportunity to attend a field trip to the Durland Scout Center on the Fridays of weeks 1, 3, 5 & 7. The Durland Permission slip is found in the Adventure Bound Packet your camper will need to complete before attending.
