Express Yourself

Emotional Mastery

Kids who can identify and talk about their emotions build healthy relationships and avoid the frustrations of feeling misunderstood.

You Choose the Frame


Viewing life through an optimistic lens helps young people achieve at higher levels and avoid the struggles brought on by negative thinking.

Bounce, Don’t Break


Learning how to rebound from setbacks is an important component of building confidence and an integral part of personal development.

Make Your Difference


Kids with the awareness that they have the power within themselves to create change and new outcomes in their life are more confident and develop a greater sense of responsibility for their future.

See It to Be It

Hope & Goal Setting

Goal setting teaches kids important skills such as focus, decision-making and communication. Studies have strongly linked goal setting to both high levels of achievement and long-term happiness.

Practice Is Perfect

Grit & Determination

With the right exposure to apprenticeship and preparation, kids can learn the important relationship between practice and self-mastery. This teaches tenacity and how to achieve their personal best.

Thank you for providing a wonderful camp experience for my son. Eli participated in Multi-Sport Camp for seven weeks this summer. He had an awesome time. Every day he came home and told me about the goals he had scored, the games he had played, the silliness of the counselors and just the fun he had. Linda A.
We have done all kinds of summer camps, and Headfirst is by far the best organized. The digital lost and found is particularly helpful. We love the values of leadership and responsibility that Headfirst promotes and would like our kids to continue having positive Headfirst experiences. Kimberly J.
Thank you for the best week of the summer, according to my 7 year old son! He loved every minute, and you all made him feel such a part of this amazing team experience. He gained confidence and was so happy all week. I will be recommending this camp to all our friends, and you’ll see Charlie again next year! Dawn S.
My sons have been attending Headfirst Summer Camps for three summers now, and they love them! The counselors and instruction are top-notch, and my boys always come home with smiles and great stories about their day. Thanks for providing such a fun, safe and positive summer experience for my kids year after year! Missy C.
The kids completed their final week of camp today and really had an absolute blast! Having a great staff really is the key and Headfirst proved that at every turn. From the counselors who greeted us each morning to those who put two exhausted kids into the car each afternoon with big smiles on their faces...truly an exceptional team! Mieka W.
