What they are saying

One thing that I would like to stress is the feeling of safety and security with these trips and the staff. I know how parents can worry about sending their children to a sleep-away camp as well as to large, crowded amusement parks and this camp covers all the bases. I went to an orientation meeting and all my questions were answered and fears assuaged.I was totally and utterly comfortable sending my son on these trips.Donna Carey Abrams - Parent 2008
