I just wanted to send you an email reply to say how much Gabriella enjoyed her week with you. She beamed every evening telling us what she did that day and what she planned for the next day. What you don’t know is that this was the first camp or activity she had done in the last 2 years. She was going through a period where she didn’t want to be anywhere without me without getting very anxious and sad, which resulted in cancelling or declining a lot of things.  I didn’t know how this was going to go when she told me she wanted to attend however as soon as we walked in the first day I could sense that she was going to do great. This is a testament to your wonderful energy that incorporated a fun yet safe environment. Thank you for this! It allowed Gabriella to break out of her little funk and show her true wonderful self. Anyway, I just wanted you to know what a treasure you are and what a fun venue you have created. Gabriella loved her book and the kudos she received! 

Thanks again and see you next summer!!
