“Just wanted to say THANK YOU for such a wonderful weekend.  Th experience for my 11 year old daughter was incredible and she hasn’t stopped talking about it yet.  She already wants to plan new adventures.  I could not imagine doing such a thing at her age.  It was a great bonding time for us as well.  She is usually my sidekick anyway but this was over the top.  I can not express how the camp has made a lifelong lasting memory for her.  She is a very proud girl and I had just as much fun myself.  Everyone ate camp was great and welcoming as usual with unbelievable energy which rubs off on all of us.  Again – Thank you!”
