Camper Reviews

Jordan L. Junior

  • 5/5.

This was my daughter’s very first camp experience having just finished Junior Kindergarten the week before. Her initial shyness was quickly overcome by the welcoming staff and a full day of activities. When I went to pick her up at the end of the first day, she didn’t want to leave and was eager to return every day for the rest of the week. Despite the extremely hot temperatures she had a great time and looks forward to returning next summer.

  • 5/5.

Our 4 year old daughter attended for this first time and we were extremely pleased with the results. The camp was conveniently located and offered an early drop-off and after camp care for parents who worked a regular work day. She also insisted on playing tennis the weekend after camp ended to show us what she learned. We are definitely sending her back next summer!
