The mission of Camp DeSoto is to provide a place where a girl can play and have fun in the truest and best sense; a place where she will learn better how to give and receive in relationships; a place where she can feel that she belongs. We want each camper to become better at responding to the unpleasant and difficult experiences that are an inevitable part of life, to grow in her own independence, and to develop in her understanding and appreciation of who she is. More than anything, we want her to be confident of God’s love for her as an individual.
At Camp DeSoto, it is our goal to aid each camper in developing her relationship with God, her sense of worth, her skills in activities and relationships, and her capacity to accept and love others in a peaceful, safe, and nurturing environment.
