“I wanted to thank you and your team for providing such a wonderful camp experience for my kid!  He has done many, many camps all over the city, and your camp has been the best.  He not only learned a ton, but he had a lot of fun!  The educational topics, art projects, e-mail updates, organization and staff were all amazing!  You are running a great camp and I will definitely spread the word!  We look forward to July camp!  Thanks for such a wonderful experience!”
-Shawn, one of our camp moms

“Carly had a wonderful time this week, and she’ll definitely be back next summer. I wouldn’t change a thing.  We’re so glad to have discovered Bluff Lake and its summer camp, and we’re looking forward to trying out some of the other programs Bluff Lake offers (fireside chats, bird walks, etc.). Thanks again.” -Shelby and Bill, camper’s parents

“Avi had a fantastic time. Thanks so much!”
–Tammi, one of our camp moms
