What parents are saying

We love that he gets to have a summer camp experience living in SF. The great location, ease of getting him there and back, and extended program all make for a more relaxing summer. We also love the variety of outdoor activities.      -Danielle and BJ S, San Francisco

I love the “old fashioned/East Coast” campy feeling. I love the social skills/good values aspect of it that goes along with all the fun. It seems to me that camp helped my son “come out of his shell” with others.      -Dena F, San Francisco
