Parent Reviews

The best indicator of a camp's quality are the reviews from actual parents of campers. Typically, camps will print an italicized quote without reference to where the quote came from. At the MLDC, a number of parents have volunteered to offer their reviews of the program as well as display a photograph of themselves and their child(ren). None of them have received any form of compensation, discount or other favor for their comments. Click here if you would like to speak with someone who has attended our camp from your own town!
