What do parents say about Monster Camps?

It was by far, my kiddos’ favorite camp and they are still talking about how much fun they had 6 months later!
— Megan M., camper mom
Lauren loved Monster Camp! She came home every day full of stories of the activities, games and fun.
— Ann L., camper mom
Madison LOVES Pride Summer Camps & has already requested to attend all available this summer. The creative (and often messy) games are her favorite. It’s hard to find “fun” camps that are offered all day for working parents. Thanks for offering again this year!
