SELF-ESTEEM KIDS CAMP/TEEN CAMP
by: Mike Lander - Camp Director
Dr. Tim Jordan's Kids Camp/Teen Camp is a special, week long, camp created
to allow children and teenagers the opportunity to understand, feel and express their feelings, push themselves past self-imposed
limits, develop positive leadership skills, develop more self confidence and take responsibility for their actions. Campers learn
how to resolve conflict in peaceful win-win ways, ask for what they want in appropriate ways, handle peer pressure, set boundaries
and say "no".
Kids Camp/Teen Camp is created, owned and operated by Tim and Anne Jordan.
The Jordan's have been sponsoring and conducting personal growth seminars, teen retreats, parenting classes, couples classes, children's
camps and team building courses since 1986. Tim Jordan M.D. is a Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrician with a private practice
in St. Louis, Missouri.
Time is spent each day on personal growth issues such as self- esteem building,
sibling rivalry, handling feelings, peer pressure and more, largely through traditional camping activities. Kids Camp/Teen Camp is
for kids ages 8-12 and teens ages 13- 17.
Kids and teens have separate course room time (minimum of 4 hours each day)
allowing them to feel safe to work on issues relevant to their age group. Some children come to handle specific struggles they are
facing in their families, in school or in their lives. Kids Camp/Teen Camp has a varied background of children from all over the United
Camper to counselor ratio is 3 to 1. All staff are trained by Dr. Jordan
and are deeply committed to your child having the best learning experience possible.
