5 Stars 2 of 3 people found this review helpful

This was the first overnight camp. He stay there for 12 days and love every minute of it. He has been looking forward to go back for an whole year. He is counting the days down to returning. The staff at Camp Chaco is loving and caring people. Excellent camp. And it only cost 58.00 per day for 13 days.....I strong recommend this camp. My only dislike was the pick up time and it was on a odd day. But, this has been adjusted this year.
