Individual exploration and discovery are at the heart of CIMI’s educational philosophy and our core components of our camp life. In addition to its academic value, another major benefit of attending CIMI is the Camp Experience. While camp is fun, exciting and educational, it also teaches children practical life skills. By working in small teams to accomplish goals, they learn to get along with others in a group living situation and forge stronger friendships. The very nature of the experience encourages personal responsibility, initiative and independence. Camp is an opportunity to develop character.
