Carolyn & Paul with their children Maya, Leila and Heather - Harvard, MA

carolyn"We have attended the Marcus Lewis Day Camp for four summers so far and my girls love it. The younger ones couldn't wait until it was their turn to go too! Some of the things they love about it are the horseback riding, the counselors, and the variety of activities from which they get to choose. For my oldest daughter, the teen exploration and day trip weeks have been a huge amount of fun, and a terrific value for the money.

Among the little things we appreciate are the involvement of the director, Marcus, who is there to greet the kids and parents every single morning and afternoon. The kindness and professionalism at the horse stable has made horseback riding a joy for the kids without any worries on our end. The girls have bonded with their counselors every summer, even when they have spent only a week with some of them. Putting on the Lion King in one week was one highlight this summer, as was kayaking, day trips for the younger kids to places like Planet Gymnastics.

As a working parent, another thing I appreciate about Marcus Lewis Day Camp is the length of the days. When my kids are in other camp weeks that end at noon, I find myself struggling to find something else for them to do in the afternoon. Having them in one place the whole day and a place that they really enjoy is something very special."
