“I just wanted to say an enormous THANK YOU to you for an absolutely amazing summer of camp. I am in complete awe of your program!!! I am just floored by the thought, consideration, and quality of the experience for all of the kids! Each counselor is amazing, I'm floored by the creativity of the activities week over week, and how you make managing an incredible volume of energetic kids look so easy. Your program is outstanding, off the charts amazing, and I'm certain it's the result of a lot of hard work. The Summer can be such a hard time for two working parents to consider, and you've created a wonderful spot where my child loves to go and play and spend time with his friends and learn and grow. THANK YOU, THANK YOU to you and all of the staff at the YMCA!!!!!”
