Testimonials
This was the most fun my daughter has ever had at camp! The counselors are so great and enthusiastic and everyone just looked like they were having a blast all week - and especially at the end of the week performance! We will be doing more Creative Action!
-- Andrea, 2014 Camp Parent
We were concerned that she wouldn't have a good experience because she didn't know any of the kids there, but after the first day, she said she loved it and by the end of the camp, she had exchanged phone numbers and email addresses with all of the girls. She is excited about film making and wants to do it again next year. Yay!
-- Cynthia, 2014 Camp Parent
Great experience for our son! Creative Action Broadway or Bust is an excellent outlet for kids to express themselves through singing and dancing!
-- 2014 Camp Parent
