At Pearce Williams Summer Camp & Retreat Facility, our aim is to provide the best summer camp experience for your child. Pearce Williams strives to do this in a non-competitive, caring way, allowing your child to discover the world around them, while promoting success, self-confidence and self-esteem in a safe, secure and stimulating environment, while living and growing within our Christian community.

The emphasis is always on participation, effort and attitude! We feel that camp is a unique place where every child can be a winner. We provide campers with the opportunity to become part of a family, where they can take healthy risks, get rewarded for successes and develop self-esteem and life skills. In the meantime they will learn about independence, interdependence, tolerance, responsibility, friendship and loyalty.

It is at summer camp that they learn to take risks, learn to resolve conflicts in a natural manner, learn to appreciate and protect our environment, learn to stay healthy, learn to be responsible for their personal belongings, and learn to have fun with unabashed enthusiasm.

Every Child Deserves a Week at Camp

Testimonials

Here are what some of those participants have to say - when ask to describe their ThinkCamp experience in a single sentence:

"In my experience, Think Camp remains to be one of the most content rich, thoughtful, and motivating conferences that I have had the pleasure of attending. Tons of knowledge, short time commitment, learning from other intellectuals, peers, mentors from our field, all relevant topics - Time well spent!" - Chantal Jackson, Co-Executive Director, Cairn Camping
