The foundation of Camp Regis has always been about inclusion and diversity. Back in 1946 when Camp Regis started, this meant that Pauline & Earl Humes wished for American children to live side-by-side with children from other nations as well. This was a reality of camp life in 1946 and remains so today.
We’ve done it because we believe in a holistic living experience, plus it just so happens that more and more international families are looking to experience American camp life. Many international families send their children to United States camps to improve their abilities in the English language, and to experience American ways and culture. Because of our history and philosophy of diversity, inclusion and exploration, Camp Regis-Applejack is in a unique position to provide a close-knit group living experience for campers who will live and learn together in small group units under the supervision of our caring and mature teachers and staff.
Our international campers improve their English through activities, and by associating words and sentences with these activities. By the end of the season, we have found that almost all of our international campers leave with a greatly improved knowledge of the English language, an understanding of American customs, and, of course, with many American friends. In any case, we can assure you that your child(ren) will have a rewarding, meaningful, and enjoyable summer experience in our camps. And, our campers from the United States get to make friends from all over the world.
