Review for Village Family Services, North Hollywood, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This past weekend the National Park Services picked one group to take on an overnight camping trip to a site we've yet to use as a campsite. We chose Village Family Services (VFS) who brought out 21 people (clients and their families), only two having ever camped before. Three VFS staff accompanied the trip.

I was the ranger in charge of planning and implementation and was impressed with this group throughout. From my initial phone call proposing the idea I received professional and constant communication reassuring me that there would be a good group of campers ready for this adventure. They arrived enthusiastic, showed their appreciation throughout and were incredibly hard-working during the trip. The staff were engaged, connected well with the youth and families and worked above and beyond their normal duties to make this happen.

I was lucky to have this group on our campout and hope to connect with them again!
