Camp Tuttle has been a foundational part of our family's life over the years, providing enriching and rewarding growth experiences for our three children. It has been a place of great joy for them, while also being a place where they have felt challenged, engaged, inspired, and supported. We have also been consistently impressed by the camp's commitment to openness and inclusivity, as evidenced by its continually evolving curriculum for campers
It is a place where you can feel at home, everyone is accepted and loved. This is where I found myself, and some of my best friends along the way, I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
There is no experience that influenced my values, work ethic, professionalism, and leadership more than attending and working at Camp Tuttle. From the challenge ropes course, to long hikes, to cleaning toilets, Camp Tuttle taught me, from a young age, the values of diversity, positive attitude, friendship, teamwork, trust, and the beauty of nature. [Camp Tuttle] was my first job and it instilled in me a fierce work ethic and shaped my professionalism - it is my favorite place in the entire world. Just like the warm embraces of the people who reside there, it welcomes everyone back with open arms, promising, no matter how far away you go, that it will always be home when you return.
My time at Camp Tuttle solidified my passion in field of wilderness and adventure therapy, while enhancing my professional development by building my confidence working with children, adolescents, adults, and families in a camp setting that strives for a safe, happy, and healthy connection to each other and the environment.
