I wanted to reach out to very simply say thank you! Both of the boys came home filled with stories about how much fun they had had, were comfortable saying what they loved, as well as what was challenging…without it being a “big deal”, confident in saying that they were homesick sometimes…but feeling supported by their counsellors and by you that they “could do it.”
This was honestly, the best experience we could have hope for them. It’s funny that after being in education for over 20 years, and knowing that kids are so much more capable than adults often give them credit for, when it comes to your own kids somehow, it seems like all bets are off! We worried just like any other parents, wondered if we had made the right choice….were they too cold, too hot, too hungry, making friends, being kind, being polite?! Their time at Kilcoo wasn’t just learning and growth for them, but for us as well.
Thank you for taking such good care of our kids, introducing them to new experiences, and for giving them the opportunity to realize that they are thoughtful, capable, contributing members of a community.
Wishing you nothing but the best for this upcoming school year! We’ll be back next summer.
