Get ready for the best summer of your life. No, seriously, we’re not kidding. Camp Cedarbrook is a great place to spend your summer. Not only is it a great missions opportunity, you make new friends and family and you impact hundreds of girls lives. You get to be in the great outdoors in New York’s Adirondack mountains instead of working inside cooking fries or folding clothes. Prepare yourself for a whole new group of best friends and an adventure you won’t forget.
