  1. My whole view on seeking a summer camp for my 14 year old Daughter, was to have her in activities with no internet. Working with others, having interaction with the kids. social skills and learning to work with each other. It is our last few years in teaching them in the way they should go, But as a Parent I’m old fashion in a way. This is really hard finding the right thing to do?

  2. I appreciate you helping me learn more about what summer programs are available. I have a friend moving into the area and is looking for camps for her children. I will mention your site to her.
