Proof Positive
Parents are singing the praises of these local summer camps.

by Liz Hunter

As parents, we’ve all sought advice from our peers. Whether it was asking for advice on weaning, diaper brands or pediatricians, we value the input of someone who has been through it. Choosing a summer camp is no different, so instead of taking our word for the fun experience your children will have, take it from these parents whose kids have attended in the past—and some who still are.

Lightbridge Academy of Mount Laurel
“Summers at Lightbridge are filled with outdoor exploration and safe water play, academic advancement with a certified Kindergarten teacher and the flexibility parents need for all members of their family.” - Caitlyn Fritzsche

Mainstage Center for the Arts Summer Stage
“Mainstage gives my children a place to do what they love, and allows my children to perform with peers that they may not encounter during the school year and learn from a professional staff that wants to see them shine on stage and off stage.” - Joyce McMurray

Robotech Educational Services
“We love summer camp at Robotech because it is fun and educational! At Robotech, our kids learn how to build and code LEGO-based robots. Summer campers are able to strengthen their computer and math skills in a small-group learning environment. Through robot-based challenges, we are able to introduce our children to the future of engineering!” - Monica Awsare

Mulford Dance Studio
“My daughter loves summers at Mulford Dance Studio. We have done Disney camps through teen camps. They are always filled with so much technique along with fun for all the children no matter the age. It’s a great place to build self-esteem and make new friends. It’s a nice little break for parents as well.” - Melissa Meischke

Nitro 1 Sports Camp
“I wanted to thank [Nitro] again for offering a sports camp that truly focuses on and results in learning new skills, teamwork, good sportsmanship and most importantly having fun! My children are beginner-level and they loved every single day!” - Megan Thompson

The Road Company Theater Group
“My daughter has participated in the last three summer camps and my youngest daughter will be participating next year. I can’t begin to explain the positive changes in her self-esteem, confidence, acting and singing ability, along with the friendships that she has made since attending summer camp. She has truly found her place in the theater!” - Barb D.

Shining Lights Early Childhood Center
“My child gets a good variety of activities. I am able to select just the weeks I want my child to attend. I love that my child is able to meet new friends!” - Former parents

St. Augustine Preparatory School
“Our son participated in summer camps at the Prep in his 7th and 8th grade summers. Not only did he have fun and hone his athletic skills, but he made friends with other boys who would eventually become his classmates. The coaches and staff were great and starting high school with a built-in group of friends made the transition very easy for him.” - Holly Campano

Chartwell Happy Day Camp
“My daughter is so exhausted and happy when I pick her up from Happy Day Camp. It brings me such joy. What a great way to spend the summer. Staff is wonderful and flexible. We’re so satisfied and can’t wait to come back next year!” - Maureen

Dance Craze
“Dance Craze is a wonderful, locally owned dance company that offers a variety of classes and camps that my daughter just loves. We could not be happier being a part of the Dance Craze family. If you’re looking for summer fun or a season of lessons, this is the place to go!” - Paula Pagano-Shah
