Life At ESF

Life at ESF means working with an organization that prioritizes people development from our campers to our staff. We are passionate about camp and take pride in making a difference in the lives of children. Formidable training and leadership development programs have propelled ESF to the forefront of the camp industry. We love what we do and it shows!

We also believe in giving back.

Since 1998, ESF has given thousands of urban children the chance to thrive in a positive, nurturing environment in our Dream Camps in Hartford, CT and Philadelphia, PA. ESF also funds a nonprofit organization, Acting Without Boundaries. AWB strives to provide young people from the disabled community with the opportunity to pursue their love of acting while building greater confidence in themselves.
