The most gratifying part of our job is when we're able to provide information families can use to find amazing summer programs for their kids.
This past weekend we held a summer camp expo at UCLA where over 1,000 people showed up to meet camp representatives from over 60 day camps and sleepaway camps to find their right camp for their children.
By all accounts it was successful in every way. Here's a quote from Ken F., a Los Angeles resident who attended last Sunday's UCLA Camp Fair with his family:
"The L.A. Camp Fair at UCLA was a win-win for our family. My wife, son-in-law and most important 11 yr old grandson came away with plenty of insight into the vast world of camping. From robots to fencing to sports, to stand-up comedy, to language immersion, to water, land and plenty more activities we have so many options to review. Thanks to you and your staff the show was well organized and upbeat from the moment we were greeted at the door to the reps behind the camp tables. The enthusiasm of adults and kids was palpable throughout the venue. Congrats on a superb effort."
Please note, we're not showing you Ken's description of the UCLA camp fair to pat ourselves on the back. Far from it, and quite the opposite in fact.
Instead we wanted you to see how valuable attending a Camp Fair can be as a resource to help you find a great camp, and more specifically, so you mark your calendars for our next two upcoming Camp Fair events in Thousand Oaks on April 14 and Calabasas April 22, respectively.
The Calabasas and Conejo Valley Camp Fairs will be fun for the whole family!
For those families searching for the perfect summer camp, we highly encourage you to come out to one of our next two Camp Fairs! Both events will be fun for the whole family with games, prizes and free food for everyone, not to mention the best part of all -- meeting and greeting staff from over 50 local and out-of-state summer day camp programs and overnight camps and so many other kinds of camps in between!
