Showing off their tie dyed camp shirts!
Just wanted to thank your staff for your creativity and responsiveness with the Camp @ Home boxes! We were so surprised to actually get boxes after being put on the 2nd waitlist -- and my girls could not have been more excited to carry in those huge boxes today and get to work! Thank you for the wonderful instruction guide and all of the materials. You have helped to make this very different summer one my kids will remember in a positive way!
