We are so lucky to have found you! I can say, you were born to make kids happy! They've made such great memories during the camp and for that I am deeply grateful! I must confess, I was sad today when I realised that the camp ended. Every afternoon, I was so excited to hear what kind of adventures they experienced! Hope we can see you as often as possible!
