They love the kids and have their best interests in mind.

They helped with my son’s social skills. He is not much of a talker, but by the end of summer camp he was a chatterbox!

Miss Chantel [Director of Programs] is great. She always ensured safety, was kind, was clear, and double-checked on the individual safety and care of my daughter.

 

It helped because I’m working and the kids get to see other kids.
