Check out this time Chill n Champ Summer camp. It is really worth it. My daughter loved going there. The program was more than I expected. The kids learn to be team players and self-confidence. They are very flexible with the times for drop off and pickup. Best of all, you can go just one week or multiple weeks. Most of all, it's inexpensive! and well worth it. Dr. Alka is the coordinator and she's terrific. She is attentive, well organized and caring. My daughter is very happy to be going back this year. I would recommend this camp to anyone who wants to give their child an exciting summer experience." Aisha
