What parents say about BAPA...

“Wish I'd discovered this program before. This is the last year my daughter is eligible otherwise we'd sign up again next year. Great facilities and organization at CSM.”

“Thanks for the great experience!”

“(My daughter) enjoyed the variety…every day she was excited to tell me about all of her experiences.”

“He (my son) finds the topics and discussion very interesting and helpful. I never see him so excited about going to an English class. Thank you! At the end of the camp, he said – ‘I think I actually like English now’. Unbelievable :)”

“I traveled in from quite a distance for this camp and I would do it again…Her (my daughter’s) experience has been very beneficial in her independence development.”

“The teachers and staff I met were really kind and caring. He (my son) liked his classes and really enjoyed this experience!”
