Parent: “My camper was very excited to go to camp every day. She found something new every day that excited her about being outdoors. She made lots of great new friends and enjoyed her camp counselors. We were grateful for the opportunity, for the kind counselors and the safety we felt in going to the camp every day. We will definitely return!”

Parent: My son was so anxious to go, but once he got there, he felt so relieved because of the friendly personalities of the counselors. You could tell they wanted to be there and were happy to be there, and that made all the kids feel at ease!”
