"The Agassiz Commitment to instilling the components of respect in all campers underscores what all parents want for their children. The beautiful camp setting will give my children and all the children an equal footing on which to explore the world around them in a supportive and safe environment. With a new sense of self and a deeper respect of others they can take what they have learned [at camp] about character, skills, and knowledge into the larger world.” - Kara, Camper Parent 2012.
“I've been going to Agassiz Village every summer for eight years now from my first summer in 2005. The summers I have spent at Agassiz have been the best summers of my life. I've had the opportunity to experience things and meet people that I wouldn't have been able otherwise. For me, the staff have become like older brothers and sisters, or parents away from home. I met my best friends that first summer in 2005, and through the years, our bond has grown stronger and stronger. Agassiz isn't just a camp, we are a family. Each member of that family is there to better the others.” - Shannon, Camper/INSTEP Graduate, 2005 – 2012.
