Inside Avid4 Adventure!
Maybe you’re uneasy about sending your kiddos to camp. Maybe you grew up in the city and never experienced camp yourself. Maybe you just can’t bear the thought of your child being away from you even though you know it’s the best thing for him (errr . . . or is that just me?). We can tell you all the benefits of going to Avid4 Adventure day and overnight camps and how we’re not just another summer camp, but wouldn’t you really like to learn about the camp from another parent? You know, the inside scoop on what they like and what their child experienced?
We’ve got you covered. Amber Johnson from Mile High Mamas gives us the low down – from one parent to another – on her experiences with Avid4 Adventure. A few of Amber’s favorite things
Amber’s kiddos have been going to Avid4 Adventure day camps for the past four summers, and she doesn’t hesitate to say that Avid4 Adventure is the best outdoor camp for kids in the Denver area.
While Amber was worried her kids might have had a “been there, done that” attitude because it was their fourth summer with Avid4 Adventure, she learned that wasn’t the case. Amber knew that camp experiences become even more authentic as kids get older and their skills increase – and that is just what her kiddos experienced at their Denver – Washington Park Adventure camp.
Here are some camp highlights Amber heard from her kids:
The best reviews always are the ones from people who have direct experience (and, “Yes,” I’m the kind of person that scours the Internet for feedback, so keep writing your commentary there), and camp is no different. Having a parent’s perspective helps to ease concerns and fears. Plus, it gives you a look into experiences that counselors may not have . . . parent to parent.
