From their website:

At Treetops, we gain time — and a host of benefits — from unplugged, simple living. Without watches or clocks, campers learn to regard time differently. Minus the array of electronics that dominates our modern landscape, they begin to see and notice, listen and hear, imagine and create. We provide Treetops campers ample time to play, learn, and create. And with time to test and try out, children discover a world of expanded possibilities.

Apart from a daily swim lesson, weekly riding lesson, and daily work job, a Treetops day is open for new experiences and adventures. Children plan most of their activities with guidance from counselors. For even our youngest campers, personal choice is balanced by a strong ethic of community service, cultivated in all of our programs, from the farm and garden to nature and wilderness.

Because our campers share a full seven weeks together, and because our camp operates on a set of common values, a strong community anchors the Treetops experience. Children live together, learn together, and work together. And whether caring for newborn chicks or preparing a meal for others to enjoy, Treetops campers come to see the value of putting the group before self. When they do, children learn both the responsibility and privilege of community.
