We find the best summer program for your child.

Comments From Parents

Hello Rick;
I just wanted to let you know that Sarah's experience at camp was a wonderful one. She had a great time that I think exceeded her expectations. An extra bonus was that she got to have private flute lessons with a very good flute teacher named Missy who just happens to be the camp office administrator. Thanks for your good advice.

Hi Rick;
Just a note to tell you that Annabel had a fantastic time at camp. I think that the summer program was more like an extension of the school. The staff treated the kids with a lot of respect. The instructors were wonderful Annabel's art & ceramics teachers were artists and provided a great model. Best of all, all the kids were cut from the same cloth. Annabel loved being with kindred spirits. Anyway, I can't thank you enough for your input. You picked the absolutely perfect camp.

Dear Rick; Just a quick note to let you know my son Neal did attend camp this summer, and he had a wonderful time there. The beginning of the summer was a little rough for him, but after the second session began at the end of July, he came into his own, and really enjoyed himself. Thank you for your help in finding the right camp for us. We BOTH had a great summer, and Neal is already talking about returning next year. I can't thank you enough!

Alex had an exceptional experience in every way. He came back exhilarated, confident & totally thrilled with the experience. The director runs a very professional and well managed organization. He was very personable, patient and informative to speak with. Alex made good friends, and learned a lot about himself and relationships with people, beyond his water and diving experience.

Dear Rick; Jordan had a great time at camp this past summer. The staff was wonderful - I was impressed. Jordan is signed up for summer 2003 and a classmate might join him.

Alyssa enjoyed camp very much. She has already expressed an interest to return next summer. We visited the camp and we enjoyed the facilities and grounds. It is a great camp for those kids who love art, and the choices are endless.

Dear Rick, the staff at camp are every parents' dream. Beginning with the director, who spent a great deal of time with me on the phone, to the staff that answered questions when I was preparing Myer's things, to the call from one of the trip leaders the night before departure. Thanks for the help!

Diego had a fantastic time. He raved about the activities such as rock climbing, blacksmithing, horseback riding, and mountain biking. Not only was his experience very positive, but the camp made sure to call us when he got to camp and confirm he made it without any problems and that he was already having fun. This reassured us. We will be sending him back next summer and his only negative comment was that it was not long enough and that next year he wants to go for the whole month so that he can do all of the things he wants to do. Thanks Rick for your help on such short notice to get Diego into a great camp.

The camp surpassed my expectations of a traditional YMCA camp on a lake. It offered Jeffrey a well-structured environment where he enjoyed sailing, canoeing, swimming, nature, archery & outdoor living skills, all with well-trained counselors. Of particular note was how well the camp staff handled Jeffrey's first week homesickness. The unit director and camp director both called me several times to discuss how Jeffrey was doing. By the second week, he was over the initial hump and really enjoying himself. In closing, I want to thank you Rick in recommending this camp, and in stressing the importance of early enrollment. I now know why it is so popular and fills very quickly.

Scott had another excellent year at camp. The counselors are so caring and loving. He feels like family up there. Of course he will be returning next summer for his third time. His camp is a truly safe and happy environment and that makes me happy. Thank you.

Matt had a wonderful 3 weeks at camp. His time there was a learning experience, fun, new adventures and lots of new friends. We had no problems with the staff - they were all helpful, nice and easy to work with. Matt's comments were that the food was good and people were nice! He also said he didn't miss TV - that says a lot to me as a Mom!!

This was the first time I trusted the use of an internet service & I must say both you and your recommendation was right on the mark! The camp was terrific and Rob's experience outstanding. Of course because it was his first camp experience, he had adjustments to make but the best evaluation I can offer is...he's dying to return! As to your service, thank you! Your response was immediate, professional and reassuring. I tell everyone about it and have passed your name along to numerous acquaintances and neighbors.
