Feedback from Families

“My daughter flew out of the car each morning to get started with her day. And each afternoon she talked nonstop on the way home about her fantastic camp experience. She’s already planning an entire summer at Waynflete next year.” – Parent of a fifth-grader

“I love the unique and engaging camp themes that are offered.  As a parent of a kid who is not a fan of ‘typical’ day camps, it is so great to have him look forward to camp each day.” – Parent of a middle school camper

“My daughter absolutely loved Summertime Arts camp! She had so much fun and made a lot of fantastic work. The facilities and instruction are incredible.” – Parent of a 2nd-grader 

“Two of my kids attended—the older in theater camp, the younger did Electronic Music Production and Sketch. Both loved it immensely. Great leadership who made it rewarding and fun. Definitely returning next year. My kids really, really enjoyed the entire experience. They loved everything about it. Can’t thank you enough for hosting them!” – Father of an eighth-grader and fifth-grader

“So great not to see counselors with smartphones!” – Parent of two campers

“We began camp the week after we moved to Maine and were worried about our three-year-old daughter’s transition. The counselors were calm and wonderful with the kids and created a sense of security that allowed our daughter to overcome the transition smoothly and make new friends—all while maintaining a sense of routine which really helped overall. Thank you, Waynflete!” – Parent of an EC camper

“My granddaughter loved Waynflete Summer Camp! We thought it would be a great experience for her, but it surpassed even those expectations. The activities are fun, interesting, and creative.

I can’t say enough about what a wonderful experience this has been. – Grandfather of a first-grader

“The counselors and staff were amazing. The kids ran happily into camp every morning and came home full of stories about their days. Thank you so much!” – Parent of two campers

She sat in the back seat and said in a blissful voice, ‘I feel so…joyful.’” – Parent
