Prospective Families


Our Mission

We teach children the skills of making and keeping friends, while building their self-esteem, self confidence and resilience.

“The Timber Lake Edge”

girls-paddling The Timber Lake experience is designed to give campers the “edge” they need to succeed in every aspect of their development into young adults and beyond. We have built a program on a foundation of safe and fun play created to promote the kinds of growth that give every child the edge they need to reach their highest potential. What we start at Timber Lake stays with our campers the rest of their journey to adulthood. And it makes a difference.


Our unique STARFISH VALUES PROGRAM® teaches campers the importance of strong character, good values and an understanding that each individual plays an important role in the well-being of everyone around them.

Play & Creative Skills

Our campers get “the edge” in perfecting their skills in athletics and other pursuits – all designed to ensure they fully enjoy the experience of playing sports and participating in creative endeavors. No matter what the level – everyone improves!




Social Skills

The true key to success in life is happiness. And the basis of happiness is in knowing how to build lasting relationships. Teaching, practicing and perfecting the two essential skills of making and keeping friends is at the core of what we do.

Self-Esteem & Confidence

Self-esteem and confidence are an essential part of navigating the world and building strong, emotionally healthy adults. We create an emotionally safe, nurturing environment and train our staff and coaches on the importance of ensuring that campers go home – at the end of every summer – feeling better about themselves and more confident.


In life you don’t always win, make the critical shot or accomplish what you set out to achieve. We teach campers to win with class, and if they must, lose with grace. We instill the competence of grit, teaching them to learn from their experiences and bounce back from disappointments.
