“Great educational experience for our grade 2 and 2/3 students! Good links to Science curriculum with engaging activities at such a reasonable cost. The fishing was definitely the most popular! Bring lots of parent volunteers to help with that -there is no cost for teachers or volunteers!”

“THANK YOU! Thank you so much for all the work done for my daughter’s birthday this past Saturday. Her and her friends had such an awesome time, that she has said that she wants her birthday there next year too. The organization, the learning games, parachute games and everything in between was just awesome. I have nothing but amazing things to say about the 2 staff members that worked with our party on the weekend.”
