My 5 year old was sure that camp was not of her after only one day at a local rec center which ended in tears. Once she met Miss Leila, that completely changed. What a lovely bundle of sunshine…Miss Leila is a natural with kids. What I thought would be a stressful day for both me and my child, turned out to be the opposite. My daughter felt very important as her “assistant” and never shed a single tear. At the end of her first day, she said she wanted to go to Season Explorers for the rest of the summer! (What a relief; I just started a new job so I had no other choice!)
I wish every child had this experience – being outside, in nature, with animals and with a director that truly cares about children. All the counselors I’ve met have a high social and emotional capacity – and the older children are encouraged to hang out with the littles (which my daughter has LOVED)! What a wonderful place….Happy camping 🙂
