What families are saying...

100% of families surveyed after GKFFC 2021 gave a 5/5 for “overall student satisfaction with camp." Feedback included:

 

“My son loved this camp, and I loved that he could be outside and explore while learning at the same time. You all packed a lot into a small time frame, but I could tell you were providing a full camp experience…and really building community too. [He] is definitely more aware of environmental issues too!”

"The full range of interactive, hands-on activities made each day memorable for my daughter and the topic of discussion in the afternoons at pick up."

"wonderful program overall. my kid's first in-person experience since the pandemic began; he's been very nervous about it. this was the PERFECT activity for him to begin his re-entry. that it was outdoors made him feel safer, and the activities were reportedly ALL fun. thank you all SO much!"
