“[My son] really enjoyed this camp! You guys are awesome!” 

“The camp was great! [My daughter] has enjoyed sharing her camp video with her friends.”

“My instructor was incredibly nice and helpful.”

“Ben [motion graphics instructor] was fantastic. He had a lot of information, and he was great at imparting it. He also has a great sense of humor and was really good at sitting down and giving everyone one-on-one instructions if they needed it.”
