Why Love Us
A wonderful environment where children can learn and grow.
Benefits of Summer Camp
While all campers are supervised and cared for with respect to cleanliness, camp clean up and mealtimes, there is still so much room for personal growth during their time at camp. Making their own decisions, problem solving or communicating concerns with counselors; these different scenarios all contribute toward the priceless goal of growing a few inches in regards to stature, happiness and confidence by the time their experience at camp comes to an end.
During the course of the four weeks CEMA Interns also help coordinate and run an end of camp special event with the other CEMA Interns and one of our program coordinators/directors. There are various other responsibilities with the CEMA Internship program such as assisting with the programs on half-staff days and performing community service in the local Anne Arundel County community.
We are aware that many children have food allergies, dietary restrictions or simply strong preferences. We aim to cater to all of these by communicating with families and children prior to the summer camp. For this reason we require that all kids bring their lunch and mid day snacks.
We offer 4 main program areas and offer a balanced program from these activities. They are Entertainment, Music, Arts, and Adventure. In each of these areas we offer constructive teaching and coaching of skills. Ultimately, we want the activities to be fun and safe. As always, the counselors – their energy, expertise, preparation, commitment to the child and to the camp culture – will be the difference.

“I have an 8th grade daughter who is 13 years old. This year was her 3rd year at camp. She has struggled for a full year
with bullying at school and is tearful on an almost daily basis. Camp CEMA is the one place she feels loved, respected,
and supported. I only wish we could develop this kind of environment in the school system. Luckily, she is in a group
chat with her camp friends throughout the year and is able to continue to feel supported,
which has made this school year a little easier on her.”
“As the parent of a high schooler, I cannot tell you how important my son’s time at camp was for him. He truly got to unplug and unwind after the
rigors of the school year, during which it seems every moment was scheduled. With the stress of high school these days,
it’s incredibly important to find outlets for our kids to reconnect with old friends, make new ones,
spend time with music and the arts, and just have FUN!”
