Style 1

I wanted to thank the staff of Grey Roots Day Camp for the great experience that they gave my daughter this summer. Jada loved the crafts, fun activities, and learning about the rain forest, Kings and Queens, and about pioneer life.

The staff were friendly, helpful, and energetic. The camp was well organized and the communication was perfect.

Jada said “ I like making the rain maker and growing my bean”. She has not stopped taking about the camp fire. She also said that she liked “playing with friends” and "being with Stacey”.

Thanks again. See you March Break & next summer!
