At 6-years old, I was nervous about sending her on a bus to camp all day - but the staff and counselors at Camp Kinneret were so organized, attentive, caring, loving and engaged with the kids - my daughter could not wait to go to camp every day. I really could not have been happier with our experience.- Season S., Camp Kinneret Parent
