What Parents Say

What Parents Say About Good Times

It was a great summer — our kids were excited to go every morning and happy when they came home. We enjoyed some different field trips this year — it gave the kids some new things to look forward to.

We like the updates in all forms of communication, Facebook, email and the photo sharing.

We tried a different camp in the beginning so we knew who had the better program. YOU WON HANDS DOWN! My son, who is young, never once complained that he was bored or felt lost. He instantly had a GOOD TIME!

You couldn't find a better camp anywhere. From the staff, to the daily activities and events, Good Times is the only camp to attend. Thanks to everyone for all your hard work, dedication, and enthusiasm!! We hope to be back next summer!!!

The kids had a great time and we definitely plan to return next summer. I think the level of activity you provide is top notch and keeps the kids from getting bored in the long 10-week run. Not specific to this summer, but just a note that having the full 10-week camp and extended hours makes it the ideal place for kids to go who have working parents — fantastic!

I think everything went great. This was Laura's first year and I wasn't sure how she would do at camp. Looking back I should have sent her full time instead of 3 days a week. I really appreciate the flexibility. Camp gave her much more independence than she has had at Poko Loko and I realized she can handle it. Thanks for everything.

This was our daughter's first experience with a real summer camp. She has loved it! The camp packs in some great fields trips and water park visits. She has so many great stories at the end of the day with the places they have visited, talking about the great counselors, and amazing friends she has met. I loved the weekly newsletter and that you took tons of pictures. My daughter has had the best summer and will definitely be going back to Good Times Camp.

Your camp is terrific. The counselors are understanding, patient and get the kids to participate (huge in my book). The wide variety of field trips was impressive. I always felt confident that my son was well taken care of at camp. I never worried about his safety and well-being. My son has social issues. The camp activities and counselors make it so that has not been an issue all summer.

It looks like parents have a lot of great things to say about Good Times!
