“She said she loved camp everyday!” That is just one of the dozens of rave reviews pouring into our office, in the wake of the ACAC Summer Arts Camp schedule. Now that school is back in session, we miss the excitement and creativity sparked by children dancing and skipping through our building, making all kinds of colorful projects—some of them even edible, and seeing their fantastic imaginations at work. We hope we sparked a life-long appreciation of the arts, and we hope they return for After School Classes and/or next year’s Summer Arts Camps.
Until then, we are thankful for much positive feedback and want to share a few reviews:
- Mr. Jack is wonderful. Kind and patient! Great instructor!
- I am impressed with the quantity, variety, and quality of projects. She liked the drawing projects best.
- This was an amazing camp and it definitely met all my expectations.
- End of class presentation was excellent.
- Mr. Gilmore was an excellent instructor and the class project was enjoyed by my son.
- They came home talking about all the great things they learned each day!
- The best (comment) is “look what I can do!”
- Enjoyable experience – nice that parents/siblings can have some tasty treats too.
- “I love it Mom! The teachers are so nice. We make great food!”
On the questionnaires, parents were asked to rate their child(ren)’s arts camps on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the highest rating. When we tallied the results, we found that:
- More than 8 in 10 parents gave us a rating of “5.”
- 95% of all parents rated our camps as being either a “4” or “5.”
- For enjoyment of projects, parents’ average rating was 4.86
- Parents’ average rating of summer arts camp teachers was 4.89
- Did the class meet your expectation? Parents’ average rating was 4.77.
What did your child enjoy most? Here are just a sampling of the happy answers:
- Making stoneware fish
- Rolling the dough for monkey muffins
- Using the big loom
- I liked making new friends
- The watermelon cake

What projects were your child’s favorites? When asked this question, we received more than 100 different answers. So, we got creative and made a piece of “word art” to demonstrate the answers! The larger words were responses we received multiple times. Enjoy!
