“Another amazing summer! We couldn't be happier. Our youngest had the best time. It was her first camp experience and the counselors were fantastic at making her feel comfortable. I can't say enough about the lifeguards too; she would barely put her face in the water at the beginning of the summer and now is jumping in and swimming underwater. Our older daughter connected with the counselors and loved the performances and all of the art projects.”
