Jeff and Sue,
This is a belated huge thank you for welcoming my son Arthur in your camp last August. As you know, he came in a bit worried about the new surroundings, the new language… Needless to say, he did not want to leave and has made friends in the few days he was there. This has been a tremendous experience for him, boosting his self confidence, discovering new sports, having lots of fun. I cannot express how grateful we are.
We are also grateful that you accepted for us to take him away before the end – the school year here starting earlier than we anticipated…
He is already talking about next year ( “ it has to be the same weeks, mum, so I can see my friends”) and we are organizing this time so that he can enjoy the full two weeks…
In the month she was at Otterdale, my daughter got her Bronze Medallion and her Bronze Cross swim awards.
I am so proud of her.
Thank you for giving the kids this opportunity. It is a life skill that might save a life some day.
She had a very good month at Otterdale.
It is heart-warming for a mother to see her daughter with great memories and big muscles (and a great hat!)
With fond memories of summer,
Mireille Parenteau and Michel St-Arnaud
The kids can’t stop talking about how they had the time of their lives!
We will see you same time and Place Next year!
Yannick, Vivianne, Mario and Julie
Dear Jeff and Sue;
A short note to say a big thank you to you both and to your team of counsellors particularly Mozely and Ryder, Pandora and Watson. Jean and Mary Pat had a wonderful first camp experience at Otterdale and would love to come back again next summer.
With all best wishes and thanks again.
Grainne & Alex MacRae
Dear Sue, Captain and staff,
We simply wanted to say thank you once again for providing Emma with a wonderful, unforgettable (Ipod free – how do you do it?) camp experience. She is so enthusiastic about Otterdale, it is inspiring and contagious. I am sure she will be back next year. Have a great rest of the summer!

Sue and Jeff,
Just wanted to let you know what a great time Nick had at camp this year. We really appreciate the efforts of your staff.
A highlight of the session was the 3 on 3 basketball tournament – for him, that was a bonus, and a great addition. Also, the five year paddle – Nick is really proud to have it, and we are really impressed with the paddle itself – what a beautiful piece it is.
Thanks again for the five great years Nick has had at camp. I am confident he will be back next year, but wanted you to know how much we appreciate your efforts at making his camp experience a positive and confidence building time.

Hello Captain and Aunt Sue,
Jake finished camp last Friday and he had a fantastic time.
I wanted to thank-you very much for providing a great camp experience for him and all the other campers. When we arrived, both drop off and pick ups, we could see there was an amazing atmosphere and energy from all the staff and campers alike.
Many thanks for all your work- Felix and Zoë cannot rave enough about life at Camp O!
Thank you for a wonderful camp experience. Gabriella came home positively glowing. She was happy, positive and excited about her experience at Otterdale. In her words, “It was the best experience of my life!”
Without doubt she will be returning – maybe even as early as this year!
