Camp Review

Being able to have all 3 children attend this year was great for us parents, giving us comfort that they are well cared-for, and having the ability to support each other while being away from us. We feel that Camp Jewell offers them a chance for independence and responsibility while having fun.

Camp Review

“My kids have gone to Jewell for many years. Their experiences there have shaped them. They have leaned valuable social skills which have prepared them for life. Their camp friends are their friends forever and they come from all all walks of life. Best money I have spent on their childhood experiences and they would agree! Camp Jewell is the best!”

Camp Review

My daughter had some personal challenges during the academic year. She really needed to have a good summer plan. After her first summer at Camp Jewell, she was able to overcome challenges better and developed life skills and personal values that will help her life long. Now, every year she looks forward to another summer at camp.

Camp Review

“Camp Jewell is AWESOME! Both of my campers had a great time there, they made lots of new friends that they stay in touch with. The counselors and directors were amazing, the activities fun and most of all my kids begged me to stay! They will definitely be returning!”
