"It was a lot of fun and I made awesome friends from all around the world.
By the end, I really got used to everything and enjoyed every moment. I thought the activities were very fun and well thought out. I think that it would have been better if we had more time to ourselves and to go out though.
The classes were of a very good size and were very helpful. The monitors were all incredibly nice and helpful."
