Testimonials

Addressed to Megan & Kaitlin -  I just wanted to take a moment to let you both know what an incredible experience Daniel had this summer in the LIT program.  He developed skills, refined others and learned a lot about himself during the 6 weeks he was an LIT.  Daniel had only positive things to say about the people, the program, the choices and activities.  Kaitlin, your approach with the teens was ideal and Daniel had a great deal of respect for you.  He felt comfortable talking with you if he had any concerns or suggestions and was sure his voice was being heard.  He was part of true team and loved being a role model for the younger campers. Daniel is looking ahead and wants to complete the CIT program in the future, possibly another year of LIT too! 
We want to thank you both for providing such a quality experience for young teens.  There are few programs that offer everything a young teen needs and the LIT program is a gem.  By combining instruction & education, opportunities for fun, spending time with peers, giving back to others and mentoring younger campers, you have created an inspiring blend.  Thanks again for a wonderful summer!  - 08/26/2014 -

I wanted to thank you overall for what a great job you've all done to put this camp together.  My daughter usually takes a while to warm up to new things, but she LOVED her first day at camp.  She couldn't stop talking about all the activities and can't wait to see what's next.  I can't tell you what a relief it is to know that she is happy, trying new things, and in great hands. ~S.Z.

I wanted to let you know how much my son has enjoyed his time at Kids First this summer.  He will be back for some more fun next summer! I also wanted to say thanks to you and your team for accommodating my older son (with some special needs) as well.  I really appreciate the opportunity for him to be involved, though he is hard to persuade to participate in some things, it still means a lot to him and me that he can come. ~S.A.

Cooper really enjoyed the time he's had a camp.  I just wanted you to know that your counselors have been amazing.  Cooper had a particularly great time with Cullan and Eric.  He talked non-stop about how much fun and how awesome they were.  This was his first time attending anything like this, so thank you so much for making this such a fantastic experience. Thanks again for such a wonderful experience!!  We look forward to attending again next summer!  smiley~K.B.
