Juniors

The Juniors Program is a values-driven camp experience designed for children who have completed grades 1-5.

Our Juniors Vision

The Juniors Program focuses on the child’s development of lifelong skills through fun and unique experiences in a community that cultivates respect for self, others, and the environment. We want to empower young minds for servant leadership and innovative thinking for today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities.

Our Juniors Mission

As TAF revolves around four key themes, new lessons and workshops are designed by our dedicated Juniors counselors every year that adheres to the following in order to immerse the children into various approaches to fully comprehend the theme of the year:

  • To inspire Juniors campers/counselors to be more than they thought they could be.
  • To spark joy through their TAF journey and apply these experiences in their lives.
  • To discover the power of vulnerability and gain the courage to unravel into their best selves.

A Typical Day for a Juniors Camper

Juniors are divided into small groups that are consisted of 6 to 8 campers and led by at least 2 counselors. The ratio of 3 to 4 campers per counselor ensures sufficient supervision.
