Camp Review

“This is the best summer camp ever. This is my second home, the place where I feel the safest, happiest, best. I have been coming to Camp Jewell for 4 years and loved it more each year I went back. The counselors are AMAZING and the people you will meet will stay with you your entire life. I would recommend this camp to anyone.”
