2018 Summer Camp Newsletter

News – Week 6 August 6-11, 2018

Well, if we do say so ourselves, this year’s 2018 Summer Camp was amazing! But it would not have been so great if you didn’t come and join us, so thank-you. We hope you have a wonderful year and come back next summer!

It’s so quiet here now, no noisy kids playing ping-pong and foosball in the hallway at lunchtime—but your great energy still lingers. When you head back to school we hope you remember some of the things you learned here, not just new skills (although we hope you keep practicing and learning), but the type of things that make you an amazing person to be around; thoughtful of others, polite, respectful, focused and hardworking, positive, and kind.

For those who have enrolled in our school after getting a taste of our programs from the summer camp, we are excited to welcome you as our students.

Parents, please expect to receive an email from us soon with a survey for you to fill out about the summer camp experience.

Lastly, we have a few things to share with you…

A DropBox folder of photos you can view and download.
