My daughter is really enjoying it. I really like the level of care the kids get, as well as the consistent communication with the parents. When the kids are able to learn and grow, on top of just having some good old summer fun each day, you know it's a well-run organization. And to feel safe and secure in your staff's abilities is very comforting as a parent. Keep up the great work!" E.O., Holliston

He was part of Freedom Camp and absolutely loved it. His counselor was fantastic, and seemed to really get him and his personality from the first day. It was wonderful to see him light up and share all about his day on the drive home. And the best part on our end — he was screen free after so many months of constant computer for school and social functioning! Again, thank you and we hope to see you again next summer."
