"The kids were still talking about you guys today and I've received some really positive feedback from parents about last week. On a personal note, you have motivated me to continue with an atmosphere of more hands-on, fun learning in this class, so I thank you
(and the class does too!) for that."

Thank you so much for teaching us!
The Ice Cream was amazing, Cartooning was awesome and Hiking was Hike-tastic.
The Legend of the Wendigo story was fantastic. The brave kids had the best trap I’ve ever heard. The Ice-Cream we made - I thought we made it with magic.
This trip was the Best Trip Ever!
