“Our instructor, Long, was excellent. When he gave instructions he made sure everyone could understand them and follow along in the lesson. He made sure to get to know each student well, and made the five days at camp very enjoyable. Nina really liked the camp and couldn’t wait to go every morning. Thank you!
