As soon as we got to camp my daughter could not wait to play. I am pretty sure she did not stop smiling all week. As a parent that is the exact atmosphere you want to see at a summer camp. Very well done camp. See you next year.

I had such a good time at camp. The coaches were great, and so was the food. We had so much fun staying in the dorms like we were in college.
