SEE WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT CAMP HUGHES!

  • Eduardo & Helena Crovato

    Our two boys have gone to Camp Hughes for the past 5 years, and always look forward to the next. Coach Jay is very passionate and dedicate to making all the trails, hikes and field trips a fun and memorable experience. We highly recommend it!

  • Gian Carbone

    Camp Hughes was a summer day camp that he held for two weeks every year. We would play sports, go hiking, swimming, stuff like that. Recently we went camping out to the woods with the usual group of people that go to Camp Hughes. That when I really started to see him as a role model because no matter what activity we were doing he would always encourage us, and would always do everything with a smile. Coach Hughes has many qualities I admire such as he is ready for anything that comes his way, he always stays positive, he is very energetic and encouraging. Coach Hughes is always there for me and I always go to him for advice and he always receives me with a smile. He is a major inspiration to me.

  • Michael Morris

    I really like how this camp connects me with nature. This camp helps you interact and meet new people from different places. It challenged me to try different sports that I never thought I would be good at.

  • Tommy Morris

    Adventure off the beaten path! Boys connected with nature through hikes and SUP. Enjoyed team activities as well as carpentry an BBQs.

  • Melissa Royo

    My children have all enjoyed Camp Hughes since its very first season and they always look forward to the next one. As a mother of active boys, I love the outdoor plans that Jay and his crew organize because they are always so Varied, from hiking to stand up paddling boarding to woodwork- and they always have a fun day. When kids come home wet, muddy and tired- that's a great sign. Jay always welcomes my boys with great energy and a smile in the morning, and if anyone knows the ins and outs of the old Canal Zone area hiking trails- that's Jay! These are places I used to visit as a kid and that my kids otherwise would have never explored. So until next season it is!
