Parent Feedback from Camp Chickami's 2020 Season

"The kids have had the best time this week...It is so good to have them outside with peers again, and for them to just be kids. Thank you for everything you have done to make this possible. I have felt completely safe sending them each morning, and they are looking forward to the rest of their weeks at Chickami!"

"My biggest thing was safety and the Y took all of my concerns away with all the communication and the protocols put in place to make sure the kids were safe."
