Camp Willowbrook plants the seeds that help children develop their potential to grow and thrive. In an era when the arts are cut from school curricula, students may not adequately develop their potential in classrooms. Camp Willowbrook addresses this as children have the opportunity to learn and create while directing their own schedules, making their own choices, and discovering their own interests. Not only do they learn about the arts, they develop valuable character traits that serve them throughout their lives.
Here's to a happy, safe, and fun summer!
