Summits is more than simply a summer experience!

New for Summer 2023 we are thrilled to offer a 3.5 week Leadership Program to 16 & 17 year old boys & girls that have completed grade 10 or 11.  Our Summit Leadership program has evolved from our traditional Summit Service program. Blending the best of the old and creating the new, we are committed to offer camp-based youth leadership opportunities and enhanced activity skill development. Summits will have the opportunity to join in on active camp life and take part in community service projects that are designed to encourage personal growth. Guided and supported by professionals, Summits will enjoy all Crescent Cove has to offer.


My favorite part of the summer was the Summits Trips.  I enjoyed every bit of the last two weeks because I got to experience and try new things that many summer camps do not offer.

My son enjoyed and learned so much through the Summits Program by participating in many hands-on activities with different organizations.  I’ve never seen him looking so excited and happy holding a paint brush, picking tomatoes, raking gravel, etc…
