What parents are saying...

"My daughter has been in a different camp for 6 years and this was by far the best! Activities, people in charge and campers were all great!"

"My son has attended to A LOT of different summer camps over the years and has never been this excited about camp before.  Thanks for all that you do with these kids every day."

"My son absolutely loved the waterfront camp last year and can't wait to join you again.  I've never seen him so happy, bouncing in the door after camp, telling all the stories of what he's been up to all day with the other campers/new friends and counselors."

"Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful camp experience my son had these past 2 weeks. He said it was the best camp he has ever been to and he can't wait until next year. I also have two younger boys aged 9 and 6 and they can't wait to go to your camp as well. Have a great summer and see you next year."

 "As a family member of one of your campers I would like to state that this camp is amazing. The staff is so knowledgeable/professional/friendly. I will highly recommend this camp to others. The program, the way it is run and all the organized activities is to be commended. I will definitely have my nephew attend next year. I am so happy and grateful for everyone's work and dedication to all the children here. Thank you all again."
