Some quotes from our 2016 families when asked to share a memorable experience:

“He truly had a wonderful time at all of the camps that he attended. He loved meeting new friends and loved the nature walk that they did in LEGO camp.” (LEGO: Fun with Animals)

 “As a parent, I was most impressed at the end of the week by the drastic difference in writing/drawing capabilities of my daughter from Campfire Stories camp!” (Campfire Stories)

“Picking our daughter up each day and hearing how excited she was to tell us about everything that happened that day.”
“We love Camp Cannon! Great camp offerings and excellent coaches/counselors.”

 “My children’s favorite experience from camp… was the service learning.” (Paying It Forward)

“Each day having my daughter get in the car and talk about her special relationship with the instructors and junior counselors.”

“He was thrilled to create his own mods. On a scale of 1-10, he said it was a 10.” (Mod Design-Java Programming)
