"As we start to wrap up this summer, I wanted to pass along a few thoughts on summer camp this year. It's very important to my wife and I that Colin attends a summer camp where we know he is safe and is being supervised. This year, during teen camp and his Friday excursions, I didn't really know what to expect. Honestly, I expected I'd have to address some issues, problems with other kids, inattentive staff, etc. I've been very happy with what Colin tells me and with all the communication from you and Michael. I care more about his safety and well-being than I do if he's being constantly entertained or having fun all the time, though he's had a great time every day this summer. We are always pleased to hear that you and your staff work hard to maintain a safe environment for all the kids. I consistently ask Colin about how staff deal with kids who misbehave, if kids are allowed to bully other kids or be mean to each other. I grill Colin about any kids being left out, being included or if staff are ever rude or dismissive with him. Colin always says no, that you all do a great job every day, making sure everyone has fun and everyone is behaving appropriately. Given how many kids you all have to deal with, I'm very impressed, though I'm not sure how you all do it. We sincerely appreciate all your hard work and effort this summer. I'd also like you to forward this email to any and all those above you, at Foothills, so I know those individuals understand how much we appreciate and value you, Michael and the other staff. We hope to see all of you again next summer. Let me know if you have any questions and thank you again!"
