My girls had an amazing experience at Summerscape. It opened their eyes to new experiences like fishing and art museums, it stretched their creativity with activities like nature sculptures and clue-based problem solving, and it strengthened their social skills by meeting new kids every week, working together in groups, and making friends. We even met some kids who live on our street, but attend another school – an added and unexpected bonus – new neighborhood friends!

PARENT TESTIMONIALS

In particular, my son loved the lil’ chefs camp. He has been a lot more eager to get involved in cooking and doing things around the house. He asks me a lot more questions about what I am doing when I am making meals and how to do things. My daughter loved the City with a Heart session and gained a lot of information about things around Elkhart. She also really enjoyed helping some of the younger kids in her group.

My son learned things that he was able to share with his family. We discovered how really good he was with robots and how this was an area that really interested him. I was worried at first that he wouldn’t be able to keep up his focus with the group but Miles surprised us all by his focus which really showed us how interested he was! As a result, we are seriously thinking of purchasing a robot/ oz-bot for Christmas since he really enjoyed it so much!
