"This is one of the greatest programs! They teach you a lot about nature, science etc. Also the other great part it is hands-on. It teaches both the kids and parents. It's very fun! I would highly tell parents to bring their kids of any age, they will enjoy it, I know my daughter and I did."
"My children asked if we could attend all three days at the end of the first day. All three girls talked to everyone about what they learned and how excited they were to be attending again tomorrow! My niece even told her parents all about what she learned and that she couldn't wait for the next day! I am glad we decided to attend."
"This was a great experience. I hope that there can be some workshops closer to Durham, N.C. My son really learned a lot!"
(Traveled all three days to the program from Durham. N.C to Greensboro. N.C)
"Both of my boys really enjoyed the hands-on activities during this program. They liked learning about seeds and plants and being able to plant some real seeds. They are looking forward to them growing into plants."
(Attended both literacy summer sessions)
