He had such a great summer!  It was his first summer away from us, but you wouldn't have known it. He made so many new friends, and cannot wait to return next summer.

Definitely tons of camp stories from (our daughter). She had a wonderful time!! She communicates with her camp community all the time and is already planning next summer. We feel very lucky to have found you!
