There is no better testimonial than a child’s beaming face and that’s what my grandson, 8 years old, had every day he came home from his first summer at Nicols Day Camps. He loved his counselors, made friends, and generally had a blast swimming and playing sports, the things he most enjoys doing. The camp is run efficiently and safely, in a beautiful setting on Walker Pond, with lots of choices in activities rain or shine, and is a real bargain for the happy summers it provides. Sincere thanks to all involved for making my grandson’s summer so wonderful – he wants to come back every year now.
