“Our Son had a lovely time at the at Camp last week. Thank-you, and especially all the people who worked at the Camp.”
– Pragash Krishnamoorthy
“I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience our daughter Addison had last week at your camp. She loved the mix of music, outdoor play and the museum environment all rolled into one camp experience.”
“It is incredible that in just one week the kids had the confidence to play an instrument for all their friends and parents at a concert. The passion for music and sincere encouragement from all the camp staff was outstanding. Addison has taken piano lessons for two years but is shy to perform. Seeing her on stage proudly playing last Friday with the support of a Sonart staff member was just wonderful. The slide show during the concert and group photo for each child were very thoughtful gestures. All the Sonart staff have a genuine love of music and sharing that love really comes through. Thank you so much for offering this unique experience to kids. This is by far the best day camp in the city.”
