Summer Camp 2015

The summer sun is setting leaving us with a beautiful sunset to remind us of the many memories created and shared. The memories of meeting new friends, exciting science projects, clever Chinese art activities, and the time we spent together. While your child has learned and grown in different ways over the summer at our center, so has our staff. We were graced with the chance to meet many wonderful students who attended, and with sorrowful and heavy hearts we bid farewell. As the sun sets on this summer a new sun will most certainly rise and we hope that they are better equipped for their new journey and challenges which they face.

 

As Winnie-the-Pooh said, “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”

 

We hope you enjoyed the time with us!
