Parent Testimonial

“The camp itself was beyond my expectations. My daughter would return home with stories about her adventures that were so fantastic, I began to think she may have been making them up, but she wasn’t! She went on field trips, swam, gardened, played violin, went to the movies, and best of all went to sleepover camp. When I asked what she liked the most, she told me she loved swimming and camping. This was no surprise to me because ANV assembled a great team that led to the creation of a community. I could go on and on about this wonderful camp. It was life changing for my daughter. I am so grateful to have been a part of this loving community the camp generated. We can’t wait to do it all over again next summer!”  – Marissa P., “Khensani’s Mom”
