Testimonials

Annie enjoyed the camp SO much (as did we). Watching those kids learn what they could accomplish together in such a short time was wonderful. And the three Dung Beatles singing is a priceless video.... You are some kind of magician. Thanks so much, Inga.

- Jane Conner, parent

Our daughter has LOVED the Keys for Kids summer program for the last two summers. She has made friends and had so much fun learning the songsand practicing for the show. At the end of the two weeks, we are always amazed at how they have learned!

- Jen, parent

Thanks for running the summer arts camp. Chloe absolutely loved it. She's been to various camps, but this is by far her favorite. She says next year she wants to do upside down fairy tale camp every week! Thank you, and we look forward to next summer.

- Christine Jiayou Taylor, parent

Our daughter had a wonderful time at camp! She looked forward to going every day. She loved the music, the play, the set making, the teachers, and yet she took learning her lines and songs very seriously. We were very impressed with the whole experience!
