She really took an interest in swimming and learning how to swim better. As a parent, I was worried about leaving her all day with children and counselors she did not know but after her first day, that worry was gone. She made friends and had a blast.

I can’t thank you enough for the impact you all had on my son. He is excited to return next year.”  Parent

“He just had to write the obligatory report about his summer vacation, and he wrote about Glacier Hollow. He said he loved the night games, especially one called Wells Fargo, and told about how cool it was to be in the blue swimmer group.

“I’m very impressed with the quality of Glacier Hollow – staff, buildings, and food as my son has informed me, he absolutely loved the food.” Debbie Albright

Thank you for such a great experience for my children.” Jane VanHaren

“Martin is already wondering who to recommend to come with him next year. He really enjoyed the camp. Martin came home with twinkles in his eye this year.” Margaret Krome

“Maggie had a fantastic time at camp – she wanted to go back for a second week. She is a fairly picky eater but loves camp food. Everything went perfectly this year. In the past years there has been a bit of homesickness, but none at all this year. I’m sure maturity has helped, but I think you’re doing something right on your end. I hear wonderful things about the counselors too. Thank you for providing such a wonderful experience.” Diane Hippman

“It was his first time away from home for an extended period of time. I believe it gave him self-confidence” Laura Beierle
