Now that we are past the mid-point of the summer, we have collected some terrific feedback from the kids. We thought it would be fun to share some of the more memorable quotes from their surveys this summer: enjoy!
 
“My favorite activity was high ropes because it allows me to go against my greatest fear”

“The best meal was pancakes or chicken patties or boneless wings or mac n cheese!”
14 year old overnight camper
 
“I like canoeing. I like being in boats and I also like water”
10 year old day camper
 
“I’d like you to add a roller coaster……nah, perhaps a swing set”
16 year old overnight camper
 
“I like Giant Swing because I like swinging and the breeze”
8 year old day camper
 
“One activity that should be added is having an animal day where people feed the animals in the wild”

Question: How can we make camp better?
Answer: “Don’t fix something that ain’t broke”
14 year old overnight camper
 
“I did not like hiking because I’m lazy and I hate walking”
11 year old day camper
