“I just want to pass on a huge thank you to you and the staff at Lakewood Lodge.
From the moment I went to collect the children, I was greeted with absolutely buzzing children, excited about the week that has been. The staff members were enthusiastic, and seemed connected to the children.
Watching the children hug them all goodbye and thank them for the epic week was awesome to see.
One staff member was told to go home and start her weekend, she then responded “I’d love to stay and say goodbye to all of the children first”. This really showed the quality of staff you had! The children mentioned how much they connected with Jade also!
The children had so many good things to say about the camp, Jonah loved archery, Izya loved everything, Mercedes particularly liked the horse riding and they all raved about the mud run. The opportunity to get to know and help teach the Tahitian children English would have been so valuable.
They were all begging to go back this week; some of these children have not had the opportunity to experience this type of setting, the activities and the “great outdoors” before.
Thank you again!”
