A Note From Ashton Camp Programs:

“After a lot of time and consideration, we have decided it is the best decision for our family to discontinue our summer camps for Summer 2023. With the increasing cost of living, volunteering all summer is not the most sustainable model for raising 4 daughters.
After Covid, we set out to “Take Back Summer” because we knew that important social and emotional learning loss had taken place during the pandemic. We continued a second year where we asked that you “Bring Us the Wild Ones” as we knew we still had gaps and ground to make up post-pandemic. We are proud of what we accomplished and the memories that we made over the past two summers.
We are also so grateful that you trusted us to make those special memories with your children and for the contributions that many businesses and families made to support Ashton Camp Programs.
We do not expect you to like this decision (honestly, we don’t like it either), but we do ask that you respect us as a family. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact us via direct message. Thank you.” ~ The Lumzy Family
