Happy Campers...Happy Parents
Over the past ten years it has been so heart-warming to hear from families about how much their kids enjoyed Character Camps.
Both my girls attended Character Camps and loved them! We chose them because of our experience with DeAnne and Right Start Preschool. We could not have been more impressed. Our girls still have their projects from these weeks and talk about donating backpacks and school supplies to kids who were in need. That was their community project one week, and they were so proud to be helping. I cannot say enough about this program and DeAnne Caffarelli

We send both of our boys to DeAnne Caffarelli’s Character Camps every year. We love that they are such a fun, engaging way for our children to learn lessons about being good citizens and helping others. They can’t stop talking about how much fun they have! These camps have been a highlight of our summer for many years.

I have two boys who both loved Character Camp with DeAnne! Our experience at Character Camp was fun and educational. My four year old said that it was his favorite camp from the entire summer! The kids had a blast and we felt confident in DeAnne and her staff. I highly recommend this camp!
My daughters had such an amazing experience at Character Camp – and they’re already excited to go back this summer! Each day they came home bursting with stories about all of the fun activities they had done – and best of all, they really “got” the character-building message behind each activity. Several months later, we still refer to lessons from Character Camp. If my daughters are having an argument, I ask them to stop and consider if they are being “bucket fillers” or “bucket tippers” for their sister. We all make an effort in our family to fill each other’s buckets with love, support, and encouragement each day. This is a unique and special camp. It helps to instill confidence and respect for self and others – and on top of that, it’s a whole lot of fun! We’re looking forward to all that our daughters will get out of Character Camp next summer.
-The Todd Family
Our family has been involved with Character Camps for years. My favorite project, my daughter was given a giant letter “J” for her first name, Juliet. She was asked to decorate it with words she felt described her. I look at that “J” and it is covered with positive words–strong, kind, funny, lovely. Through the camp and DeAnne’s leadership, she was learning to see all the special, unique and wonderful things about herself–traits that really mattered. It was an amazing experience for Juliet and I still tear up when I see her “J”.

My daughter attended Character Clubs last summer and her experience was amazing. The coaches kept the children engaged and my daughter left with life long lessons on how to be an asset to her family and community. She cannot wait to attend another camp to expand on all the wonderful things she learned at Character Camp.
