Outdoor Education Testimonials

“Thank you so very much for providing our students with such a rich and wonderful experience at your camp last week. The students learned much about working together, pushing their limitations and having fun times as well.”

“A few brief words cannot possibly describe the impact Capernwray has had on the hundreds of students and chaperones that I have brought over the years. 

For the past nine years I have been bringing my grade 6 students to Capernwray to explore educational opportunities not available in our area.

These three busy days also serve to build and strengthen relationships in preparation for the transition from elementary to middle school. Outstanding resource people, food and facilities allow us to cooperatively plan an itinerary that best suits our needs and allows our students to walk away feeling better about themselves and their place in the world. 

The respect with which our students are treated, and the positive interactions they have with the staff, make them feel valued and ready for new challenges. Ask any of my students and they’ll tell you this was not just the highlight of grade 6, it was the highlight of their elementary school experience.”

Capernwray is a highlight for all our students and staff.

In my cottage some of the boys wrote that they had gotten to know people better than they would have guessed before camp. 

I was especially thrilled when students shared their hearts for their relationship with God. 

Going through the team building initiatives courses as well as the great session times, students overcame many fears and came to a dramatic realization that we do need one another to do well. God has placed us in a family of believers to help us in our struggles. 

Capernwray is a fantastic venue for students to reflect and draw closer to God, and Camp Capernwray has proven to be a blessing this year again. 

Thank you for all the wonderful memories!
