“Just wanted you to know that Hannah absolutely LOVED your camp. You turned her onto dancing and singing, neither of which she has ever done before. She took out her notes last night and sang some of the songs, and turned on one of the dance songs on her ipad and did some of the dances. Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful week!”
