"This was so needed for our child. We felt confident that the staff wanted to be there, and they were enjoying themselves with the kiddos. They were professional, well trained, so confident and engaged. The department handled all of the safety precautions for COVID-19 well. Our child needed an fun outlet for social needs, creative needs, and just plain fun. He got that at Backyard Explorers in Concord"
"The counselors are always good, but they were outstanding this year. It was a hard year to do camp but the counselors were incredible in forging bonds with the kids"
" The summer camp was much needed during the pandemic. She was ecstatic about camp when we picked her up on the first day. She thanked us so much for signing us up and she really looked up to her counselors. She was a much happier kid this summer. I am so grateful that she has a summer before having to go back to distance learning and that your counselors made is a safe environment."
