Testimonials from Happy Kampers!

"We LOVE the camp shirts this year.  I love that they are light weight and more like an athletic shirt. My son put it on this morning and said, 'This feels great!' It is obvious how much hard work you put into this program every year.  I just wanted to let you know that it does not go unnoticed and that our family appreciates all you do. This is such a great camp!!" -Stacy

"Summer Kamp was an adventure our son will never forget! From the weekly swims, field trips and outside fun, the teachers couldn’t have added any more activities to the schedule! I loved that the kids were still learning as the teachers weaved in educational lessons throughout the week." -Megan

"My older son has attended Summer Kamp for two consecutive years, and it’s something he now looks forward to each year. He was overheard at a recent play date telling a friend, 'You should go to Kamp—you go on a field trip and go swimming every week!' He can’t wait to be reunited with old friends and teachers, as well as find out what new adventures await him in the summer months. His little brother will join him this year, and from the glimpses of Kamp he’s seen at drop off/pick up and the stories of field trips, and swimming, and fun times—oh my!—big brother has shared, this little guy couldn’t be more excited to be part of the gang this year." -Heather 

“My two daughters went to Summer Kamp for two summers in a row.  They loved it! J  They especially loved the small number of kids, the really fun counselors, the weekly field trips, and the school-based setting.  Every day was fun yet there was a structure to the day and the counselors were very organized and responsible.  I honestly cannot think of one negative experience we had with Summer Kamp.  I would highly recommend it to any family.  Check it out!”  -Kim

"Our son loved the one-on-one attention he received from the staff, and the field trips and various weekly adventures kept him excited and engaged. We are truly thankful for all the Kamp staff did to make him feel welcome and included!"  -Emilie & Sean
