What Others Are Saying . . .

"I truly appreciate that you offer a camp experience focused on nature and my children loved attending your camp for years. We live in New Jersey, but my parents live in Orleans. I am a teacher and not working in the summer—we do not use you for daycare. We carve time out of our summer deliberately so that my kids can attend your camp. Thank you for what you do." —Camp Parent
