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.
