What are parents saying?

Check out our testimonials below.

Alessia really loved it and is still talking about it throughout our trip to Italy. I really appreciated the staff’s extra attention in making her morning drop off less difficult. She felt confident and could enjoy herself knowing that mom would come back. She learned so much and is looking forward to next year!

The CEED camp was a wonderful experience for my son — it enhanced his interest in nature, and he was introduced to new and different animals and creatures of all sorts. Really a great “down to earth” experience for kids that created lasting memories and interests. Thank you!

James cannot wait to go back next year!

My daughter loved the program. Came home exhausted!

He had an awesome time!! He loved everything that they did. It was a perfect mix of everything for him.

Emma loved the hands-on experience and the ability to be free to explore nature with great supervision.

Savannah had such an AMAZING time at the CEED Summer Nature Program. Every day was a new experience filled with adventure and exploration. The two week program gave Savannah the nature experience that no other summer camps were able to offer! The three “E”’s…EDUCATED, ENGAGED & EXCITED to LEARN. Thank you CEED for making this the highlight of Savannah’s Summer! 

My daughter had a wonderful time and the fact that everything was so hands-on made it an amazing experience and memorable!
