Tracy & Harry Horan
Thank you so much for having Harry on your Easter camp, he had a fabulous time he is a very quiet young man and knowing Stephen since he was a young man myself I knew Harry would be in good hands everyone was very kind and upstanding.
He was delighted to win camper on the last day and is looking forward to summer.
Many thanks again to all the leaders.
It was amazing, affirming and energizing. My kids have been so many camps but this one was the best. They had a fantastic time. They were full of positive energy. Life changing!!! My son (ASD) was giving me massive smile coming from camp.
This is the first time after the camp that they cooked for me lunch with such enthusiasm after learning how to to cook meet balls. The staff put together a program that exceeded my expectations. It was worth every penny. Do it !!!
This is one camp parents and children can agree on. My son throughly enjoyed every day and every session. He came home daily excited to tell us what he learned and experienced at camp.
For me, I loved that it was structured in a way that the children had to set daily goals and that the variety of activities let children shine in one area and challenged them in another. We will definitely be returning to this camp this summer.
