Feedback from previous campers!

“My son loves the program and doesn’t want to go anywhere else.”

“I had two daughters in the program (6 and 8 years old). They both loved the programming and the counsellors.”

“My son has had behaviour issues, and anxiety through all camps he has ever attended. Never has he ever been excited about a camp and asking when he can return, until this one. THANK YOU!!!”

“My girls were so excited about their time with the animals, and so excited to share what they did and learned with us.”

“Thank you for offering these camps, my daughter loved it!”

“I couldn’t be more excited about this camp. It isn’t near our house, and resulted in an extra hour of driving in the morning for us, and an hour in the evening. However, we will do it again in a heartbeat. This is the first camp our 6 year old has enjoyed. He craves adult attention, his anxieties are soothed by animals, and loves learning. This camp did all of the above. Thank you.”
