"This camp had such an influence on my daughter and now my son. After each camp, I have seen great improvement in their ability to interact with their peers and in their confidence. Seeing them learn so much and to get so excited about what they learn is great! I really appreciate all that you do."

"What a wonderful program. My son has never been so excited about learning. My son's week at the Dallas/Fort Worth program brought all his history lessons from school to life. He can't wait to go to Austin next summer."
