     Parent Reviews 

"Last year my daughter attend your day camp. She came home each day with a smile on her face and exhausted. She loves being on the water all day. She loved fishing off the dock, jumping off a canoe in the middle of the lake and learning to paddle. She is registered for another week this summer. She is excited to be back on the water. She has said the only way the camp could be better is if it was an over night camp."

​“Regattas are an amazingly pleasant way for parents to spend a day, and the kids have lots of fun too” 

​"My daughter attended a one week canoe camp for the first time and will be returning this summer! She loved the activities, the staff were friendly, helpful and the ratio of staff to campers was amazing.​"
