Based on your session, I have created a formal parental communication plan for my head staff to follow to make sure all calls are being followed more efficiently. Your research and knowledge of the camp consumer is invaluable to a Camp Director. A very big thank you for taking the time to research the client’s expectations; as well as creating a forum to share this with the camp community. Your work and knowledge raises the bar in the services that the camps provide to their clients.”

The thoroughness of your presentation blew me away and you tackled issues with a sincerity and a courage that I admire.”
