YMCA Camp Willson

Summer Camp 2000 Parent Evaluations

Quotable Quotes from summer campers and/or their parents:

“YMCA Willson Outdoor Center is one of my all time favorite camps and it is fun and self improving at the same time”

My son wants to return next year and bring a friend with him. He wanted to take us to see everything-horse barn, cabin, horses in the field and his pony “Copper”.

“I think your overall program is wonderful. From your office staff to the counselors and helpers in the kitchen- everyone seems to love what they are doing for all the children.”

“My daughter loved it so much she begged to go back for 2 weeks next year”

“I personally love Camp Willson. I have so much fun doing sports, swimming and arts and I get to hang out with some cool people”

“Our daughter left camp with high self confidence and happiness in meeting new friends and learning new skills. I like limits on pop and snacks and the Christian atmosphere. I believe in good staff supervision and discipline where and when it is needed!”

“Our daughter had her 1st overnight camp experience as an only child. Your camp gave her the best and most satisfying experience I could have ever imagined for her. Wonderful times and memories!”

“Our child seemed to have a great time. I like the focus on respect and responsibility and honest.”

“It was fun, but you learned at the same time. It was clean and well kept!”

“Our child had a wonderful time. We can’t thank you enough. I am so thankful that they had the opportunity to experience your program and plan to send them again next year!”

“Staff are very caring. Child gets to learn and participate in lots of fun activities. Staff challenge child to do their best and allow them to help plan and lead activities. Camp facilities are excellent.”

“The camp was very organized during check-in and especially check-out! The ratio of children to counselors was also excellent.”

“Our daughter enjoys camp so much that she is never ready to leave at the end of the week and talks about going back the next year all year long!”

“Your camp is clean, well-run, well structured and organized. Counselors are caring, understanding, enthusiastic and all of them did a great job. In fact, Ashley had such a good time, she didn’t want to come home.”

“Friendly responsible staff who foster good relationships among the kids and make the camp fun.”

“My only comparison is my own camp experience as a child. My children came home from Camp Willson and share the same kind of excitement and enthusiasm about their experiences as I did and it excites me to know they love coming here”

“My child had an experience that will last and be remembered the rest of her life.”

“Camp really helped her mature and helped her confidence.”

“Please feel free to use me as a reference” Kathy Raschella (daughter Raschella)

“Our daughter used the word “awesome” to describe her camp experience. She wants to return next year!”

“My children loved the camp. They are more confident and have many great experiences to share.”

“My son had a wonderful time away from home and didn’t want to leave. All the activities were great!”

“I thank you for Casey’s camper experience this past week. Last year’s camp (not Willson) was a disaster. I thought she might not go to camp again. She has talked about Willson non-stop since we picked her up on Sat. Last year, all she could do was cry. This terrific week of camp has given her new confidence and independence in the daily management of diabetes and being away from home. She is already planning her next summer’s visit. Please convey our thanks and appreciation to her counselors and all of the other staff at Camp Willson. Thank you very much.

“I think it is fun making friends and counselor friends. I feel like it’s my second home.”

“Wow! What positive feedback from everyone we spoke to and everyone was available and willing to speak to us.”

“My child was a very happy and excited boy when we picked him up. His spirit was high.”
