Comments from Parents of Previous Campers
Thank you for giving our kids such a great opportunity to experience the summer camp just like we remember it from our childhood. Sasha had so much fun and was telling us how amazing the food was and how different this camp and children were from the other camps he’d been to. He can’t wait to go back in August and is super excited about it. Regards, Olga
When we picked up Andrew from camp he was so happy, I just wanted to express my appreciation for all of your attention and love to the kids!! You will be seeing Andrew again since he is so excited to go again in August 🙂 I will send you the registration soon. Natalie
