My son has participated in Operation Junk Summer Camp for 2 years now. Everyday, he came home to share and explain what he learned that day. He was so excited to get up and go each day and would rush me to make sure we arrived on time. He never wanted me to pick him up early. I found this camp to be a valuable experience for him and it helped him to be more motivated and focused in school. Thanks! - Mother of Conner 

Operation Junk Summer Camp was a great experience for my two children. They loved going to camp each day. I love the activities they provide because they are so fun and hands-on that the children don't even realize they are learning. The staff was always friendly, available and went above and beyond to make it a positive experience for both of my children. Thanks for a great summer! - Mother of Erin and Scott
This was the only camp that my son said he wants to come back to next year "for sure" - Parent of 2012 Camper
