An Awesome Mom from Florida
I was particularly impressed by the organization and thought-out structure of the camp. When my son told me about the finer details of his days (like listening to chapter books on the ride to the trail or playing games to encourage water drinking), I felt even more confident and happy about our choice of camp.

Marvelous Mom
My girls love the super fun, energetic counselors - their parents lack the enthusiasm to get them hiking. They love meeting new friends while hiking. The atmosphere is so friendly, they have an insta-community of friends, even if they just met.
