Reviews from Parents

"Let me first say what a great time my boys had at camp- you and the camp staff do such a fantastic job running such a great program. THANK YOU!!!! I have been so impressed- wish I had found Webb Mountain sooner.

-Karen Kellogg of Shelton

“My daughter just completed her second week of camp and we couldn't be happier.  She signed up originally for one week and begged to go again.  Mr. Tom and all the counselors were fantastic.  They put in such an amazing amount of work to ensure that the kids enjoyed every second.  My four year old bounced out of bed every morning excited and eager to get to camp.  We will definitely be back next summer.”
-Kate Hinrichsen of Trumbull

“It was great to have my son outdoors for several hours of the day, learning about things that I probably wouldn't expose him to myself.  What a great opportunity to educate my 3.5 year old-hands on and exploration!”
-Alessa Podolak Laczkoski of Monroe
