"We love Camp Kirk!
Alex had gone to camp for about 6 years, and talks about it all the time!
Alex is doing well - really flourishing in high school! Making many new friends, joining clubs, and taking charge of his independence and responsibilities.
Camp Kirk has helped a lot with those skills, and as a parent, it's so gratifying to see!
Henri is a beloved leader, and the staff are consistently outstanding.
Even when Alex became a teenager and "too old" for summer camp, Camp Kirk was the only place he wanted to go. The activities are great, and don't miss the canoe trips! There's so much to do - from the ropes course, to the rock wall, Bucky-Mucky swamp, archery, crafts, Kirk-a-thon, and more.
I still would like the recipe for "Henri's Famous Hamburgers"!
"Camp Friends" always brings a tear of longing to our eyes.
Camp Kirk will always be a part of our family. Thanks for the lifelong memories!"
