Testimonials  

WHAT OUR PARENTS SAY . . .

I loved that my shy daughter was taken in by the counselors and welcomed. Having swim
lessons was also important to me as was free play time.
One of the biggest reasons I chose to send my 6 year old was my observance of opening
ceremonies last year. The saying the Pledge Of Allegiance, patriotic songs and teaching
respect for all as the older children sat patiently while the little ones put on a skit was
wonderful.

Jack GrahamCo Founder, Coffee Inc

This was Emme's 2nd year at Winnewald, and she has had an absolutely fabulous time.
The counselors have been amazing, the variety of activities continue to hold her interest
and the swimming program has made a huge difference in her confidence in the water.
We have nothing but great things to say about Winnewald, and I recommend you any
chance I get!

Zak ReidInstructor, Skate Nao

Best Summer Day Camp in the area!

Jack GrahamCo Founder, Coffee Inc

My kids come home every day singing new songs, full of fun details from their day, with
a reinforcement of the respect and lessons we teach at home, and telling me how much
they love camp. They NEVER want to go home!

Eve CrawfordProduct Designer

Summer is short enough - let every moment at camp count! My children have learned to
swim, fish, play cool outdoor games and much more in a safe environment. The
counselors are experienced and most have attended this camp since they were children.

Aura BrooksGraphic Designer

Winnewald is a great camp; the staff are wonderful and the activities and games the
children play foster teamwork, collaboration and fun!
