Your programs are life-changing, wonderfully rich in content, and truly character-building. Enough good things can’t be said about Windsor Mountain. It exceeded every anticipation. I give Windsor Mountain my highest praises.
My two kids, girl of 11 and boy of 13 from California, had an absolutely fabulous time at this camp. The non-competitive, developmental approach with plenty of individual attention made all the difference to my kids. …they were always encouraged to take things to the next level, to challenge themselves and to take calculated risks that made them grow. For my daughter entering Middle School, this was a very empowering and fortifying experience that served her well during the transition. For my son this was a relaxing experience where he was able to explore new dimensions of himself. The staff is competent and responsive, many of their counselors come from top colleges, the setting beautiful, good facilities, activities galore (guided choice), great adventures, the food healthy and delicious, excellent health center on site. Most of all it’s a camp with a heart, a place where kindness rules and kids can find their own path.
I wanted to tell you how happy [my daughter] is at Windsor Mountain International Summer Camp. We just returned from visiting the camp, and she was full of stories about her new friends, and all of the new activities and events that she has been a part of. [My daughter] is so comfortable with the staff, the kids and the low key pace of the camp. On visiting day we took her from camp for a few hours. At 6PM she told us we had to hurry to get her back to camp so she didn’t miss the evening activity. Once back at camp she gave us big hugs and kisses, then with a smile quickly ran off to join her friends. I couldn’t ask for anymore than to see her big smile as she went to join the other campers.
