At CIC, we are proud to provide an environment that encourages diversity and embraces all. We are committed to creating a camp experience where everyone is treated with respect and has equal opportunities to participate. Our nondiscrimination policy ensures that all persons, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, marital status, national origin, or disability, are welcome and respected.
Every summer we see how children benefit when they unplug from their busy lives. Stepping away from screens, even for a week or two, helps campers connect with new friends and young adult role models. Taking time out from technology helps them discover new strengths in themselves as well as outdoor pursuits that can last a lifetime.
Without the daily pressures of social media, cell phones, television, and video games, campers are truly present and in every moment at camp. They are better able to connect with people and the world around them. Regular face-to-face interactions with fellow campers and staff members engage their young brains in a uniquely positive way, resulting in greater emotional intelligence, improved social skills, and meaningful friendships. Camp is fun!
By unplugging at camp, campers become more aware of the environment around them…and what a world there is to discover at camp! Spending their days outdoors is a powerful experience for kids who spend all year in classrooms, in scheduled activities and without enough time outside. CIC is a natural wonderland for campers to discover. It is home to a variety of marine life, birds, and land mammals. Whether they are swimming in the ocean, hiking on a wild trail or seeing a star-filled night sky for the first time, campers are outside and active every day.
