Parent Feedback

“LOVED. IT. This camp fed my son’s creative soul!”

“This is the second week of my child’s first summer day camp experience. He had another great week and kept talking about the little monsters/robots he made. We are so glad to find a camp that we can come back to every summer now!”

“My daughter absolutely loved camp and asked if we could sign her up next year. Great camp with great leaders!”
