My son had a great time at Lewis Day Camp. He loved canoeing, archery, songs, swimming and games. I was greatly impressed when we attended family night, and we were warmly greeted by several of his counselors. The only thing my son did not like was the long bus ride from Putney to Springfield. He had to take the bus because of our work schedule, but once he got off the bus, he was fine. He truly had a wonderful time. I was greatly impressed by the director, who took the time to talk with me about my son and some of his personal challenges that he had before attending the camp. While at camp, my son was happy and well behaved. I have to attribute this to the excellent care he received. Thank you!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

sending my son to Lewis Day Camp for two weeks in the summer of 2009.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure they have all they need to continue operating such a wonderful program.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

it is affordable and outstanding in quality.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

professional, kind and caring.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do many things to improve their facilities, such as add a solar heater to the Lewis Day Camp swimming pool.

Ways to make it better...

if my son did not have to ride the bus for such a long time.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

not something I can comment on; I just don't have enough information.

One thing I'd also say is that...

this is a fantastic organization. I wish I could work there.

My son has been going to Aspire for the last 5 years as well as Lewis Day Camp in the summer. Without the Meeting Waters YMCA Aspire program, I could not work full time as a single mother. The entire staff is wonderful and each day I pick him up, they give me a run down on his time there. Lewis Day camp has been wonderful because no other programs offer all day care in this area. I couldn't be happier with the level of service that myself and my son receive from Meeting Waters YMCA! Thank you for your years of service to this community. Keep up the good work!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how the staff interacts with the children. They care about each and every one of them. It is a family atmosphere.

My daughter began attending ASPIRE when I started working full time during her first year of elementary school. It was an anxious time for her and all the big changes in our routine were overwhelming. From the very first day, the wonderful ASPIRE staff made her feel comfortable and welcomed. In just weeks, my daughter was gushing about ASPIRE and missing it when she wasn't there - she still feels that way a year later. In that cozy room she gets to interact with students of all ages (an experience that has connected her more to her school at large), explore themes, books and projects that are engaging and meaningful, and further develop the social and physical skills that she is so excited about right now. I cannot thank the ASPIRE team enough for their friendly, creative and responsible care of children. Meeting Waters YMCA provides valuable support to my daughter and, therefore, to our whole family.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the quality of staff that I have met. Whether they are young or old, trained in education or not, they have been unfailingly kind, friendly and enthused.
