Ages / Grades

Ages 12 through 18
Grades 7 through 12 and just graduated
There is some free time during the day. Many 12 year olds enjoy camp life, but the independent campers do the best. Some 12 year olds who are not independent might be better off waiting a year and attending as a 13 year old for the first time.
