Awesome camp for kids with great leadership and support. Amy as well as the leaders are very informative and organized so the parents are at ease and comfortable. Highly recommend! My kids even led me on the same hike they took during their camp day which was a blast!

I just wanted to say how impressed I was with all your staff the professionalism and the enthusiasm that they brought every day with the kids was remarkable, we did a lot of things this summer and your organisation was by far a step above any other. It's a good feeling to leave your kids knowing they are in capable hands.

The best experience for our little rugrats! The camp leaders went above and beyond to assure all the kids were comfortable, having fun and learning new skills. I can’t wait to have the opportunity for future camps for my little one.

Every day spent outside doing all the simple things kids should be doing. My daughter enjoyed herself and we will be signing her up again.
