    Hillary Clark, Maya’s Mom, Summer Camp 2016

    “I just wanted to say thank you for providing such a safe, caring and fun program. It was the perfect trip for Maya’s first time abroad on her own and she had an absolute blast! I think the friends she made will also determine future travel plans for her. She mentioned your  invite to intern… how cool. I don’t doubt she will be back at some time or another. Getting to see the adventures on FB each day was a real treat – thank you so much!!”

     

    Karen Thornton, Charlotte’s Mom, Summer Camp 2016

    “I want to thank you SO much for taking such wonderful care of Charlotte and all of the others in your care! Charlotte had the most wonderful time! She loved every minute of her stay in Ireland, and I am so happy that we chose your camp to host her and Keri. She has never been away from home for that long, and it was so wonderful for us not to have to worry about her because she was in such good hands with you.”
