(My two children) have had a wonderful week so far at camp. They get up and tell me they are excited to go to the OAC. The counsellors are great! (My son) is not as social as his sister and he actually wants to hug his counsellors goodbye at the end of the day. I was also surprised to hear that (he) loved swimming. At other camps I have to persuade him to go into the pool. With respect to their many food allergies both yourself and Anna have been fantastic. It’s great to see people who know my children and who take their allergies seriously. I feel comfortable dropping them off to you in the mornings. As a mom it is not easy to trust people and to have confidence that your children are safe with others. Knowing my children feel comfortable as well is so important. The staff at the OAC go the extra mile to make my children’s experience at camp as fun and as SAFE as possible (i.e. no milk served the weeks (he) is at the OAC – thanks Alex!). I truly thank you and appreciate what you do.- Mother of Campers
