Parent Testimonials

Highlights of the Parent Testimonials video:

“I think it’s fair to say that it’s the highlight of Lauren’s year. Every year this is the thing she most looks forward to… Last year when I picked her up from the bus I had tears in my eyes because I was so happy to see her, and she had tears in her eyes because she was sad to be coming home.

I feel really really grateful that she has the opportunity to come and spend a good part of her summer here. The thing that I love about this camp is… that this is, in my mind, a true camp. You come and you enjoy the environment and you are taken away from what you have in the city– you’re not connected to your phone ,you’re not connected to your computer. You get to experience being with other people and do activities that you can’t do at home. To live together and work together in this type of  natural environment is invaluable. They really do have a sense of independence because they are not told every day what to do, they get to go and choose what they get to do, and I think that fosters independence.

It’s beautiful here, and in terms of the terrain and the geography, I really don’t know any other camps that can offer what this island offers… it’s a spectacular place.”
