We at Camp Rosenthal also believe in Erik Erikson’s theory of “systematic instruction.” This article states many of the reasons why Camp is not only fun for children, but also helps them learn. Thanks, Michael Thompson, for reminding parents what works best for kids during the summer months.

Located in Dowagiac, Michigan, just 115 miles (or 90 minutes) from Chicago, Camp Rosenthal is nestled within its 330 wooded acres and surrounded by a 30-acre lake. During the summer, it is home away from home to 350 young Chicago campers, where they make their introductions to the great outdoors while meeting new friends, learning new life skills and discovering their leadership potential. Off season, Camp Rosenthal offers a beautiful landscape for private group retreats, weddings, corporate events and big family outings.
