Very engaging and professional... The best he's ever been to. -Shannon A, Parent

I love the energy in the room when I walk in the door to drop my kids off. -Jill Andreyule, Parent

A totally new experience. Like Junior Outward Bound. -Lucy Boswerth, Parent

He said "I have a Ninja Name now and ninja friends to make moves with. I can't wait to go back tomorrow." -Katy Powell, Parent

She loves Trackers. She always ends her day happily exhausted, full of stories and adventures. -Shelby Wood, Parent

He came home and showed us his whittling project that he had started at camp. He continued to work on it, outside for about 30 minutes, which was awesome! -Joan Stephens, Parent

Always a great experience. I prefer Trackers to the multiple camps we've tried. -Elisabeth Novak, Parent

Hard to imagine any other camp that is this committed to the safety and enjoyment of the kids. -Andy & Monica White, Parents

This has been the best camp! And, we've gone to a few! I have been telling everyone about it. I don't think you could have developed a more perfect camp experience for my son. Seriously… Honestly, I cannot think of enough words to describe how great this week was for Ethan. He was engaged, enthusiastic and exhausted at the end of the day. The storyline that his group developed was amazing and kept him thinking and connecting every night. I love the enthusiasm of Stewart. The patience and guidance he has with kids is inspiring. He has the ability to command a group of excitable kids safely and in a way that gets them thinking, creating and using their imaginations-- which is an under utilized skill (in my opinion). I loved how he made the whole camp adaptable to what the kids were interested in, and had the flexibility to flow with it. Fantastic job you guys!!! -Erin Decristo, Parent

So far, it is the best camp we have ever been to. -Jennifer Pull, Parent

Boy won't stop talking about the stuff they learned and the great time they had! -Megan Kelly, Parent

Fantastic! Wonderful people who are passionate about what they do and care deeply for their students... This camp was outstanding. It exceeded our expectations and it was a great value. -David Cowing, Parent

He's been proud to share new things he's learned with whole family. He specified, however, that he's not learning like school, he's "discovering." Thank you! -Pamela Van Der Wolf, Parent

Surpasses any experiences with camps so far; this is our first Trackers Camp. -Karl Lloyd Sones, Parent

He says this is "probably the best camp I've been to in my whole life" (little does he know he's doing kayaking camp (with Trackers) in 2 weeks… I wished I'd plugged into your camps sooner. -Gail Anderson, Parent

This camp is so awesome that when I pick him up he says right away "Aren't you gonna ask me about my day and what I did? -Parent

This is the best camp ever- we are thrilled. -Janine Framolin, Parent

If your kid is imaginative, adventurous and loves the outdoors, there simply isn't a better camp experience. -Nicole Corde, Parent

He had a lovely time all week and is talking about next year already. -Quenby, Parent

This camp is so awesome that when I pick him up he says right away 'Aren't you gonna ask me about my day and what I did?' Usually I have to ask a million questions to get a couple of details. -Molly McAndrew, Parent

Pel says this is one of the best camps ever and that all he wants to do next summer is Trackers. -Jeff Marks, Parent

Hard to imaging anything else that would compare. -Andy White, Parent

First time camper and we loved it! -Melissa Appleton, Parent

We started with one, now we're doing 5... Next year we're going for overnight camp. Maybe someday he'll be a counselor. -Laura, Parent

My son loved his camp experience. As a city dweller, I take pride that my son still has an opportunity to catch frogs, go fishing & be outdoors. By far one of the best camps he's attended. -Toni Ketrenos, Parent

They are the best I have seen! Smart, passionate, energetic, funky and caring. -Katy Banovic, Parent

The elf pouch is a huge hit and will likely be worn all summer. Thank you for running such a great program which combines the wild with story and imagination so well. -Julie McMillan, Parent

The teachers were friendly and welcoming with my shy daughter. This was her first camp experience and she warmed up to the class quickly thanks to them. She is sad the week is over. She's loved taking me to Oaks Bottom every afternoon to show me new places and teaching me new things she's learned. -Pamela Van Der Wolf, Parent

Trackers is light years ahead of other camps my kids have done. If there's a theme, activities are on-topic and engaging (which wasn't the case elsewhere). -Christine Jeschke, Parent

Thank you for an awesome, inspiring week. We are an avid backpacking, camping family and I was very impressed. -Jody Lands, Parent

Your program builds skills, confidence, competence and appreciation. -Stacy Rosoff, Parent

Just want to thank you for being everything you advertised (and more) and everything I had hoped for in this particular camp experience for my daughters. -Ona Nowina-Sapinski, Parent

I am truly impressed, no thrilled, to have found Trackers. -Jody Lands, Parent

Tell us about our staff: they radiate serenity and competence. -Cathy, Parent

This camp is seriously a FULL week of doings! -Rebecca Hicks, Parent

My child loves Trackers camps like no other camp! We cancelled some of our other camps this summer so she could have more Trackers! -Gene Haliman, Parent

I just loved that my daughter was getting to all the things I did as a child. -Parent

This was her first time with Trackers. We were totally impressed by the camp and it's staff. That's the word around town - everyone raves about this camp experience. -Lolly Jamerson, Parent

You rock, the energy is amazing. -Michelle Wirta, Parent

I have to give a thanks up to June and staff from the Wilder Camp too. She took her campers to my Dad's (Storeybrook Stables). Dad was very impressed with how well behaved the childern were and how the staff took care of them. -Colleen Lwey, Parent

Love the instructor/parent communication. Love the safety and adventure combo. Love the realism and fantasty combo. -Norwood, Parent

Hands-on learning with a dose of humor. -Parent

When my seven-year old son said to me, "Mom, Can I go to Trackers instead of college?" I knew that the incredible teachers at Trackers had an impact that was going to shape the rest of his life. Whatever makes you happy, my love! -Parent
