Exceeded All Expectations
"Congratulations on a FANTASTIC camp!! I have four kids telling me every day how amazingly magical this experience is for them. They are transported into another world in their imaginations. What more could a Muggle parent ask for!?
At pickup each day, my first question to all of them is, 'On a scale of one to ten, how was camp?' I get four tens without hesitation! Then I ask them if camp met or exceeded their expectations. Exceeded all expectations. Kids tend to be pretty honest about what they don't like and even when I ask if there is anything... nope, nothing they would change. It is pure magic. They are loving it.
I can't tell you how happy I am that I was able to put the carpool together to drive the long distance for my daughter and her friends. Next year, I will have a busload!"
Inner Safe Place
I was most struck by my daughter's description of how she found her 'Patronus', her inner power animal. This was an absolutely spiritual event for her and she 'finds' it every night now. What a gift to have given her... and all the kids. She said, 'This is a place I go, a safe place I go and only I can go.' Wow, just wow. No price on that.
A Magical Place for a Fertile Imagination
"When I picked up my son on the very first day, he was excited to show me his cubby, cauldron, quill, wand, and notebook. Holding up the quill he said 'it’s real' with shining eyes. Then he noticed a girl nearby and got all tense and said, 'I mean, it’s just a pen with a feather glued on.' And she said, 'No, actually it is magic.' And he relaxed. This has been the best thing - knowing that he has the opportunity to be in a group of people who will 'go there' with him. I am so grateful to you and Fiddleheart! Thank you for providing this magical space for my son's very fertile imagination."
"I want to say thank you going to such great lengths in order to make Fiddleheart the incredible experience that it was. Not only did you have to live up to tremendous expectations from my daughter, but based on our daily conversations on the long ride home, I'd say you met and exceeded them in most every way. Each member of the staff was patient, helpful and super kind. Thank you for exposing my daughter to such a wonderful experience!"
The Value of Respecting One Another
My daughter loved every minute of Fiddleheart. What struck me as her parent is when told me that she likes this camp because you have made it an important thing to treat one another respectfully. Not only is that important to her, but is so comforting for me as well.
Submersed in All Things Magic
"My daughter enjoyed every day at Fiddleheart. She loved everything and said it was better than she expected. She usually tells me things she doesn't like about a camp but didn't say anything negative about Fiddleheart Academy. Each day she was eager to go to camp and was very sad on the last day. She enjoyed showing me around during parent visitation and telling me all about the different classes. I was very impressed with all the professors and how they really submersed the kids in all things magic. Also, her wand was beautifully made."
Thank you for a great camp. I appreciate all that you have done to create this wonderful experience! My son has had a lot of anxiety in the past when attending camps, so much so that he didn't attend any camp last summer. He really enjoyed Fiddleheart and I am thrilled for him!
