I wanted to thank you for helping my son to take this journey, he was extremely talkative on the way home!"  K.B.

"Words really can't express how much I, as a parent, want to thank you for these last three weeks. They have sincerely been magical.  My son has come home every single day full of confidence and pride and joy. But even more than that, I've watched him grow exponentially more confident and mature.

"It was so great for my son to be a part of the Model UN/Debate camp.  He really enjoyed meeting everyone, learning about the whole debate process, and being inspired by such gifted young people and adults.  I have to say that prior to going, he was fairly skeptical and hesitant about even attending, but by the end of the week was thanking us for sending him, and asking to come back next year ! Also, thanks so much for the very positive, self-esteem building environment that you and your leaders fostered-it made all the difference!  Thanks again for helping my son 'find his voice'." A.Z.
