Going to Family Camp we had no idea what to expect. I knew I wanted to go last summer and expose my five year old to the life at Camp Interlaken. But as the day approached I was a bit nervous as to what I was in for. From the moment we arrived, I knew I made the right choice. It was a special trip for our entire family. Enjoying all the activities, swimming, water skiing, water crafts, and zip lining; it turned out that the little things were the best. My son has never been able to walk out a door and play with friends. That freedom was a great experience. We all bonded closer during camp and had a lot of laughs. The staff was amazing and we enjoyed our time in a way that none of us will forget. Jordan describes it as his favorite memory of summer and wants to return next year. Thank you to everyone for a fabulous time and a wonderful family memory we will carry for years to come. " -Jessie, Tony, Ruth, and Jordan Beck
