Hear what folks are saying!

 I just wanted to let you know that not only did we have great weather yesterday, but we also had a wonderful canoeing experience.

First, I would like to thank you for all your time and efforts with the organization of the trip and for answering all of my questions. Secondly, I want you to know that your staff were awesome. Adam handled the large group well, he was great with the kids. The remaining staff were just as awesome. They were all fun and entertaining, and I know that all the kids had a great time. The parent volunteers were just as impressed with your staff as I was. We couldn't have asked for a better group and experience.

It was great working with you. I am thinking this might be a yearly event for my class.

Thanks again,

Maggie
