OUR TSH CAMPS ARE DIFFERENT...
It’s led by Educators (real Teachers!).
We are committed to engaging academics during these 6 weeks (children lose over 60% of what they learned the previous year over the Summer).
Campers work towards a common goal at the end of the camp.
Campers learn real world skills while being outside, playing, laughing and making life-long friendships.
