“This was our 3rd different camp this summer and by far- the most organized, personable and thoughtfully run. I really felt that our child was safe and there was great engagement. During the other camps, our child would come home not really knowing teacher or campers names but in the short week – she couldn’t stop talking about her experience and friends.”    – Camp Parent
