A long time ago, during the summer before Matthew and Joel were entering 9th grade, Camp Phillip held a ten-day long camp. We have not held one since. But,last summer, on a Saturday as a great group of campers was leaving us after an awesome week, it was clear that everyone involved wanted this to be just a little bit longer. So we decided to bring back Ten Day Camp.
The goal of this camp is not to give the campers just enough to get them through to the next summer. The goal is to give them so much that they are full. Think of this camp as the Thanksgiving dinner of summer camp. The campers don’t have to choose between horseback riding and rock-climbing. They get to do both. And they get to go on a caving trip as well!
The campers will have four extra nights of camp to fill with memorable campfires and adventurous evening games.
The best thing about it is that we will have a chance to build on the growth that just starts to make itself obvious on the last couple of days of a full-week camp. The bonds that grow over a six-night camp will strengthen during a ten-night camp. Instead of the campers looking at their parents at the end of the week and asking, “Why did you have to come and take me away from here?” That full feeling will lead them to hopefully say, “Wow, that was an awesome experience that I will never forget. Thank you for making it possible for me to be a part of this camp.”

P.S. It’s really an eleven day camp. It’s ten nights.
