Huawni Featured in Bay Area Magazine

Saturday, July 18th 2015

We were excited to see that Camp Huawni was featured as a top summer camp in the Bay Area Health & Wellness magazine for the May/June 2015 issue! Author, Tanisha Hicks, talks about how beneficial summer camp is for a variety of kids, with a variety of needs. Tanisha refers to Camp Huawni as “the camp of all summer camps.” She continues to say that at Camp Huawni, “your child can experience the joys of ‘just being a kid’ in a structured and safe environment. Positive role models, being ‘unplugged’ from technology and enjoying the outdoors are why families love to come!”

Check out what Bay Area had to say about Camp Huawni!

We are continually thankful for our Camp families who share about their experiences at Huawni.

Sunday, October 14th 2012

Travis wrote a neat article called “7 Reasons To Send Your Kid To Summer Camp” in the May/June issue of Texarkana Parent.

Since Camp Huawni is near Texarkana, it was fun to highlight some of the summer fun benefits to sending kids to an overnight summer camp.

Here’s a short list of 7 reasons to send your kid to summer camp:

  • Socialization Skills
  • Counselors Act As Positive Role Models
  • Finding Delight In Simple Things
  • Building Independence
  • Experience Nature
  • Build Sibling Relationships
  • Create Friendships

We’d like to say a special thank you to Heather Thomson for posting this article.

Go camp!
