|My 9 year old daughter just returned from a week at Camp Mason as a first year camper. She had a fantastic experience with only positive things to say, and this is coming from a "glass half empty" kid. I was really impressed with how professional and organized the entire camp is. The staff and counselors were all friendly and my daughter liked everyone she met, especially her counselors and cabin mates. The cabins were great, in good shape and with their own bathrooms, sturdy bunks, very clean. She even liked the food! The activities sounded great and she enjoyed all of them, including an off-site trip. I was really nervous sending her off to camp for the first time, but Camp Mason was a fantastic fit and they took great care of her for the week. I was really impressed that someone from the camp called me mid-week to give me an update of how she was doing; this was a really wonderful touch and set my mind at ease.
Also this blew me away: we got home and I looked through her suitcase and said "why didn't you wear any of these clothes we packed?" they were all folded neatly and organized as they were the day she left. Even her sleeping bag was folded and put away in it's stuff sack with care. She said they're actually dirty, but one of the CITs came and helped me pack up, so we folded them back up and packed them neatly. For a kid with ADHD, she came back only having lost a pair of swim goggles. I was really amazed. I knew it would be a great week for her, but the extra care and attention they showed the younger kids was above-and-beyond. She will be back next summer!
