(KSL News) It's that time of year when parents can get a break from the kids, and kids can get a break from city life.

This week on Eyewitness News we're taking a look at summer camp options. We begin with Camp Tuttle, nestled in Big Cottonwood Canyon near the Brighton Ski Resort.

It's an overnight week-long camp run by the Episcopal church. Tuttle features mountain biking and rock climbing, but it's really known for it's rope courses. The courses teach campers balancing and the value of relying on each other.

Elmer Downs, assistant director of the camp, said, "It's all about teamwork, teaching the kids how to work together. It's all about love and companionship. Our ropes course is a big seller. We have about 15 different activities. They're very active and it's very fun."

Camp Tuttle begins on June 24. The camp takes kids from 3rd grade up to high school. There are family camps, too.
