What Others are Saying . . .


The following testimonials were submitted anonymously via our end-of-season camp family evaluation.

"This is an amazing camp. The closeness of nature will make these kids better stewards for the future."

"What a gift to offer this magical experience! Our children came home every day energized and inspired. They regaled us with stories of their encounters with the farm animals, catching toads, playing games outside, meeting new friends, and entertaining camp counselor stories about birds. THANK YOU to the amazing Drumlin staff!"

"My child had a great time and is looking forward to returning next year. I really appreciate the inclusive atmosphere of this camp. (I noticed the pronoun pins worn by staff.) It seems like you do a great job of building a camp culture and sense of community and helping kids learn more about nature. Thank you!"

"Thank you so much for making this year happen! It was so important for our children to have a chance to play with others and that would not have happened this summer if camps like yours hadn't made a tremendous effort to open and open safely."
