Parent Testimonials:

 My son is showing greater personal responsibility by cleaning up after himself, pitching in and clearing the dinner table without prompting and recognizing that he is a part of a whole unit."

"This year's camp was a success for our daughter. She had a great time and formed new friendships which I hope will continue throughout the school year."
