We are midway through our first week of camp, and I always marvel at how adaptable young children are when placed in a new situation. As a parent, my natural instinct is to hover and protect. I would imagine my children must sometimes feel they are incapable of dealing with certain situations because of my overprotective nature. Camp Takajo is a perfect place for a child to learn life skills in a safe, appropriate and comfortable environment. It is fascinating to think that in a few short days, our youngest campers have met new friends, bonded with counselors, adapted to our routine and familiarized themselves with our facilities. Think about what remarkable accomplishments these things are for a seven-year old! And to think, a child is doing this away from his dear mother and father. That makes this experience so much more valuable.
