What a delightful, educational, comprehensive and exceptionally run camp!! We were impressed from beginning to end, every day a new learning experience and opportunities to grow as a mini medic and empathetic camper. The counsellors were wonderful & fun and the impression and knowledge you left my son with was unmatched by any other camp he attended this summer. Weeks later he is still incorporating his learning & terminology in his day to day and enthusiastically sports his camp medics shirt and badge any chance he gets ;) Superb teaching! Thank you Amanda & Team, we’ll be back!
