"I wanted to say thank you for a great week at camp as Rennie's one-on-one assistant. It is hard to find quality child care and summer care in Asheville, and you are definitely providing an affordable and top-notch program for kids on our community. As a Kindergarten teacher for Asheville City Schools, I am delighted to find that the lessons of the classroom are continuing in your program in the summer and all year long. Throughout the week, your counselors have done an excellent job teaching the values of respect and responsibility. They have provided daily opportunities for writing experiences such as journals and letters to community leaders. I have been impressed with the expectations for high standards the staff has communicated to all the children in your program."
