Top 6 reasons to join Trackers Tween camp and Teen camps...

1) First in Safety At Trackers Camps our counselors make the well-being of your child a priority while also cultivating a greater awareness for personal safety with all participants.

At Trackers, teens make friends with similar interests. Your child becomes a member of a strong learning team while embarking on fantastic adventures.

"Very engaging and professional... The best he's ever been to." -Shannon A, Parent

"I love the energy in the room when I walk in the door to drop my kids off." -Jill Andreyule, Parent

"Always a great experience. I prefer Trackers to the multiple camps we've tried." -Elisabeth Novak, Parent

"Hard to imagine any other camp that is this committed to the safety and enjoyment of the kids." -Andy & Monica White, Parents

"This has been the best camp! And, we've gone to a few! I have been telling everyone about it. I don't think you could have developed a more perfect camp experience for my son. Seriously… Honestly, I cannot think of enough words to describe how great this week was for Ethan. He was engaged, enthusiastic and exhausted at the end of the day. The storyline that his group developed was amazing and kept him thinking and connecting every night. I love the enthusiasm of Stewart. The patience and guidance he has with kids is inspiring. He has the ability to command a group of excitable kids safely and in a way that gets them thinking, creating and using their imaginations-- which is an under utilized skill (in my opinion). I loved how he made the whole camp adaptable to what the kids were interested in, and had the flexibility to flow with it. Fantastic job you guys!!!" -Erin Decristo, Parent
