Why Eaglebrook?It looked like a great fit for me and my family. There is something similar about the schedule and routines at Eaglebrook, which aligns with camp life and the way you are interacting with the kids throughout the day. You see the students in a variety of different activities throughout the day and you are able to be there for the students. The lessons in the classrooms can extend into the dorms.
