Dear Camp Earth;
I wanted you to hear a great compliment from a camper
last week. the camper stopped by headquarters office to tell them
what a Wonderful activity they took to Sunnyside Wools Farm tour.
they signed up and took their 3 yr. old daughter who just loved it.
they themselves thought "oh well, we're going to see things."
but he said he was so pleasantly surprised as to what all they got
to do and their daughter could not stop talking about it. You know
that is something those people and the little girl, will be talking
about and what they will remember about their vacation. please share
this with Dave. I am so happy that you added so many wonderful activities.
