Hawk Circle Summer Camp – Early Bird Special!

“Our children wanted to go back to Hawk Circle every summer because it was fun. We sent them back because the unique program at Hawk Circle fostered a deep understanding and connection to nature, self-discovery, and collaborative skills, friendships and community. Now that they are 19 and 21, we see them entering the world of adulthood with confidence and grace. We will always be grateful for their Hawk Circle summers and the caring, nurturing staff that contributed to who they are today.”
