I just wanted to take a moment this morning to say thank you for another wonderful camp experience for our daughter this summer. While she was only able to attend the 2nd session, we could not have been more pleased!! Of course we had some hesitations about sending her at all with the current state of the world but you all always go the extra miles to help put us parents at ease. Thank you for running such a smooth pick-up and drop-off process! Your staff is always so friendly and the fact that you all take the time to know her by name touches our hearts. We appreciate every extra precaution that was taken! It was such a relief that she could still enjoy a great summer camp experience and feel some normalcy by interacting with others. So thanks again for being everything and then some!! We appreciate you all! – Camp Corral Summer '20 Stingray Group Parent
