Brown Ledge is a place where campers can have fun and relax. It is also a place where each camper has full opportunity to receive quality instruction from beginner to advanced levels at her own pace. All activities operate throughout each day allowing each campers to attend activities when and for the length of time she chooses. Staff is given a great deal of autonomy in the operation of activity departments and instructional format. Because of this counselors are hired for their maturity and sense of responsibility, as well as experience and/or performance ability.
