Testimonials

I just wanted to say thank you to you and your staff for the wonderful experience Bethany had at theater camp. This was her first time experiencing anything like this, and I believe she loved every minute of it.  I think she would have stayed the entire summer if she could.

- Traci Martin

 

Thank you so much for providing a wonderful week for these kids!  My daughter Addison has enjoyed it immensely!  This program was so well organized from drop off and pick up, to your helpful emails.  We’re already looking forward to both of our girls being able to attend camp next year.  

- Lindsay Tibbs

 

William had a fabulous time again and is already talking about junior high camp next year. Hard to believe, these 4 years have gone by so fast. My husband and I really appreciate all you and your staff do for the kids and for your Christian testimony.

- Terri Arrington

 

Thank you all so much for the great experience that Lexi had.  I have to say that this was one of the best camps I have ever seen.  She had so much fun and we never felt uncomfortable leaving her.  You all did an awesome job and she is even more excited about Theater than before, and that is saying a lot.  This was her first experience with acting and she cannot wait for the next time.

- Jason Tyree

 

I just wanted to let you know how thoroughly Peyton enjoyed summer acting camp. You all did a terrific job! Not only was the play just wonderful, but Peyton learned so much. A week later, she’s still raving about it and looking forward to next summer. Really, it couldn’t have been better. A standing ovation for you and your staff!

- Lorraine Eaton

 

I just wanted to take a moment and thank you and your amazing team. Jordyn had an amazing week and already misses her friends. It is worth the drive from Orlando and I can't say enough about the programs.

- Rebekah Kinard

 

Lainey had a phenomenal time this past week. She has not stopped talking about all the fun she had, the friends she made, and the plans she has made for next year!

- Dana Woody
