“Both my son and daughter have been going to CATS camp since they were 4 years old. Every year, without fail, this is the one camp they will not pass on. I can’t praise the camp or the staff enough. The auditorium is always filled with passion, energy, positivity and that sense of an imminent deadline in sight when we see their hard work in the final production just 10 days after start date. I have sent the camp’s information to many parents over the years – and I have always been thanked profusely for the introduction. This camp is for all children – to build their confidence in public speaking – and is most valuable for those who are timid and reserved. This is the incredible skill that is gained from CATS – a skill that will be put to test numerous times in life whether it’s for work, a family event, or a community task. I have tried many camps over the years – and CATS ranks highest without a doubt! ”
“I recommend CATS camp to everyone I know with kids. I am so impressed with it every year. Your camp attracts such nice kids. I do love that the bigger kids interact wonderfully with the little kids. The staff is amazing and I love the staff continuity. My kids LOVE Sam, Zoe and Britt. They constantly talk about “As the Camp Turns” and tell me how funny the skits are. As a parent, I feel confident that my children are well cared for and kept busy and entertained, as well as getting lots of fresh air and outdoor play. Thank you for another year well done. See you next year!
