After camp ended, we sent “Parent Evaluations” out to parents of campers. The feedback from these Evaluations is really important to us. We have only received 15 Evaluations back. Please – check with your parents to see if they completed and mailed theirs. If they didn’t and still have it, ask them to do so – Thanks!
BE THE DIFFERENCE!!
