You did a phenomenal job adjusting and adapting the program to state requirements and protecting the health of campers and staff. Both staff and children wore masks (properly!), which was our biggest concern going into camp. Thank you for this sorely needed opportunity for structured, social fun outdoors! Kudos to the Trustees, Jamie and team!

The first day was a little rough, and I communicated my concerns to Jamie- she went above and beyond to address them and clarify what actually happened. 🙂 My daughter ended up having a fantastic week and was really proud of her creations- food and friendship bracelets! We appreciate everything you did to make the camp happen- it’s been a lifesaver for us as working parents, but also the first chance in many months for our child to have socialization again in a safe environment.

Powisset Camp is our girls’ absolute favorite, you all do an amazing job and especially so this summer with all the COVID concerns. Our daughters went to the camp last summer and we weren’t sure how it would compare this year because of all the safety measures, but it was every bit as wonderful while still providing a very safe environment for the kids. The girls woke up early every morning to get ready for camp, they were so excited to go, and we only wish we had signed up for more weeks. It is apparent how much hard work Jamie and all of the counselors put into the experience there, we could not love it more and will be back next summer!! Thank you for everything!
