Thanks for everything you do for Aidan and all of the campers. I asked Aidan this week on a scale of 1 to 10, how would he rate Mountain Mist Camp....and he said '15' he loves it like always. And I have gone thru a bottle of Spray-N-Wash which is a sure sign that he is loving every minute of it. Thank you again and I'll see you some time over the summer." - Lisa Pelletier
