Well Structured and Organized Camp

26/07/2016 - Have attended previously and found it much more valuable in terms of skills-development, as well as enjoyment than alternative camps offered by other companies. Well structured, organised, friendly staff, great atmosphere and learning for the kids.

17/07/2016 - Tim was very engaging came and spoke with parents.We will do again but I am not sure about attending in summer. i think it would be very hot if all of it is outside. If the program showed the schedule include time in and outside we would be a goer!
