"All of the staff were friendly and outgoing." "We had so many activities to choose from throughout the day!"

"Daniel was outgoing and friendly.  He was able to answer every questions we had.  Kelly was also really great.  She was very knowledgeable about the water craft and super helpful with my 5 year old that has sensory issues.  This weekend was a blessing!  We will for sure be back.  The kitchen staff were increible.  Friendly, kind and helpful above and beyond their responsabilities.  Thank you to all the staff!"
