" couldn't have been better"

"I just wanted to tell you how much our daughter enjoyed herself this summer at your camp. This was her, our, first experience and it couldn't have been better! She loved her counselors and the entire experience.

When she first approached us about a summer camp, I was hesitant and overwhelmed. I searched for camps and yours stood out. You answered my questions and your staff helped me with payments; all of which was appreciated. When we arrived to drop her off, the check in procedure was helpful and easy. Everyone made us feel welcome. While she was there, we were able to catch up via the pictures your staff took which made us feel connected. When we picked her up she couldn't stop talking about how much fun she had. Thanks so much!"
