Matthew (age 10), Andrew (age 7), and Lauren (age 3)

“My kids are loving the summer at Landon.  My daughter loved her Princess Ballet camp – she still talks about it daily and wants to go back!”

Amelia (age 6)

“I just wanted to thank you for running such a wonderful program!  Amelia loves the Girls Day Camp.  At the end of every day, I ask her what her favorite thing was, and without fail, every day, she responds, 'EVERYTHING!'  She has not been a huge fan of participating in sports in the past, but this summer has changed that.  She enjoyed being in a less competitive, single-sex group where she was given the opportunity to try new things without worrying about the boys.

She enjoys learning the skills in addition to playing the games.  The only thing she has asked for as a birthday present is an archery set, and she's decided to be on an all-girls soccer team this fall.  Of course, she still loves arts and crafts, science and nature, and camp games.  But I am so thankful that you have given her such a positive introductory experience to so many sports!  In addition, she LOVES her counselors. They have created such a positive environment as well.  Amelia can't wait to come back again next summer!”

Jack (age 6)

“Jack’s swimming skills have improved dramatically this summer.  He has gone from barely comfortable blowing bubbles to being able to do freestyle and streamline under water.  And, best of all, he loves swimming now.  We’re even talking about swim team for next summer!”

Molly (age 6)

“I just wanted to thank you, all of the Girls Day Camp counselors, and especially Meredith Luther for making Molly’s camp experience “the best ever”.  Molly was excited to receive her first Happy Camper award and I just can’t thank GDC enough for creating such happy camp memories for her. We have found our go-to camp for summer and you’ll be seeing us every summer from now on!"

Sean (age 6)

“Pick up and drop off has gone exceptionally well and we are excited that our son is at the Boys Day Camp again.  Everyone, from the traffic coordinators to the counselors and those in charge, show great enthusiasm and energy.  And I love the daily slideshows…it’s another great touch.”

Steven (age 6)

“I am very impressed by Landon Summer.  It is so well organized and so much fun!  The staff is nice and helpful as well.  Steven has had a great experience at the Boys Day Camp.”

Wills (age 6)

“Just a note to tell you how much we LOVE camp!  Wills is having the time of his life in the Boys Day Camp.  Yesterday, he finally jumped off the diving board.  I am sure you know this but the staff is absolutely amazing.  It is obvious that they care deeply about the children.  Sending Wills to Landon is the best decision we ever made!”

Ava (age 7)

“I wanted to let you know what a fantastic day Ava had at the Girls Day Camp.  She couldn’t stop talking about how much fun she had trying out all the sports.  This camp is a winner!”

Kate (age 7)

“We were at the Katy Perry concert last night so were going to let Kate sleep in, but she is having such a great time at the Girls Day Camp again this year that she didn’t want to miss a minute of camp today!”

Nora (age 7)

“The Girls Day Camp at Landon Summer has been wonderful – it’s the first time Nora’s been eager and excited to go to camp every day.  Y’all are doing something right!”

Amelia (age 10), Zachary (age 7) and Sophia (age 7)

“I just wanted to say thank you for a great week at Landon Summer.  My three kids had a great time!!  My girls loved coming home with all their tasty treats from Tiny Chefs and were so excited about their day that they made brownies from scratch together at home.  It was really nice to see them work together as a team.  My son learned so much at his Mad Science camp and he keeps reciting new science facts.”

Jacques-Olivier (age 8) and Phillipe (age 6)

“Just wanted to thank you and tell you that both my grandchildren LOVED the Boys Day Camp, all the activities they did, and the atmosphere you created. My daughter loved seeing the daily slideshows on your website – she lives in Paris and was comforted by seeing what a wonderful and carefree time they were having. Thank you for the wonderful work and attention.”

Gabriel (age 9)

“Gabriel thought Boys Day Camp was fantastic!  Thank you for all of your efforts to make sure he loved his experience.”

Gero (age 10) and Theo (age 8)

“This was our first camp experience and the kids found it awesome!  I would like to thank you for everything, especially your flexibility and help.  We enjoyed the kindness and professionalism of the Landon Summer staff.  Thank you very much!”

Benny (age 10)

“Benny is having a wonderful time at the Boys Day Camp and exclaims “Landon is the best camp!”

Ella (age 11)

“We are deeply appreciative for the example of inclusion, respect, and equality that you modeled to all the children at Landon Summer! Our daughter is a straight A student in public school who happened to be born with physical disabilities. Other private programs would not welcome or serve her. At Landon Summer there was no hesitation and they made it work perfectly.

She learned a lot in the Typing for Beginners class, even though she only has use of one hand. You went the extra yard, learned new material, loaded new software, brought in new ideas, and gave us constant feedback. The other kids also saw that those with disabilities also have ABILITIES and are fun. It was win-win all around and I can’t thank you enough!”

Jabril (age 13)

“My nephew completed the Intro to Algebra and the Study Skills classes.  I wanted to share with you and your staff what a wonderful experience he had learning for three weeks.  He said the teachers were nice and they made learning fun.  The biggest compliment to you all is to have a student leave summer camp and say 'I want to go to Landon.' I appreciate the time and care that was invested in him.”

Anna (age 14) and Abigail (age 12)

“Just wanted to say how much my daughters loved the Painting and Drawing classes at Landon this summer, as always.  They provide such a wonderful, relaxed, supportive atmosphere.  The teachers are very flexible and easy going.”
