Should I bring my kids to the reunion?  

Hear what a few folks had to say about the children's program last year:

"My 15-year-old son was not enthusiastic about attending the children's programs, but he did a 180 almost immediately upon arrival.  That never happens."

"She was very nervous about participating.  She came back from first day on cloud nine!  I greatly appreciated that her counselor was willing to walk her to dorm after events in the evening.  I was on my own and didn't have a spouse to help with this."

"Had a blast.  Made friends he'll likely have for a long time."

"My 5 year old daughter had the time of her life!  Having a 1/1 counselor assignment was excellent so she got plenty of attention and felt safe."

"They both loved it.  Their counselors were excellent, the children seemed to make friends easily, and they loved the activities.  Our 8 year old son cried later about having to say goodbye to his counselor, a sure sign that he had fun."
