"Hi Julie, 

Once more thank you for such an amazing experience for K. My husband and I were reflecting upon the way that the structure fostered both true creativity and collaboration-- the type of experience that is hard to find, but so precious for our daughter. She had tears in her eyes after the last day…


Thank you!!


-D "
