Comment 5/20/11: "I did want to share with you that whenever I mention a day camp to my kids they keep asking if they can go to yours.  They loved all the projects they did and getting to ride your horses. 
Thank you for providing such a wonderful opportunity for children.
Bethann W. (mother to Andrew and Katie)"
