What is a Brother/Sister Camp?
A brother/sister camp is actually two separate camps which come together from time to time for joint activities. Shohola and Netimus are both single sex camps, which have operated as brother and sister camps for over 60 years.
Why Choose a Brother/Sister Camp?
We have always felt that there is a great benefit to children who attend single sex camps. The benefit can be very simply stated as a lack of pressure. In a single sex environment, boys are more free to be boys and girls are more free to be girls without all the pressure of constantly having to worry about the opposite sex. A brother/sister camp offers this benefit while also giving campers some wonderful opportunities to socialize with and enjoy optional trips and activities with the opposite sex. Boys who actually have a sister at Camp Netimus will also enjoy brother-sister visits weekly while they are with us. Each will get to see the other’s camp and enjoy a dinner together on Sunday evenings. They may even be surprised at how much they miss each other while they are apart!!!
