From out first contact with ADTC to the middle of the 2nd session, Shannon and her staff were empathetic, communicative, supportive and flexible. We faced a few challenges to enrollment - financial and emotional (our daughterís previous sleepaway camp experience was a disaster) - and Shannon was flexible and responsive, even over the course of an everlasting game of phone tag. I think for any parent who gives his or her child to someone else to care for, the most critical tool to a successful experience is communication. I heard from the camp director regularly, and even a few extra times given our daughterís need for additional support. The camp director listened and extended considerable effort to accommodate our daughter and help to ensure her experience was robust and memorable. But the most telling and indicative sign of our fabulous camp experience was our daughterís immediate commitment to return the following summer. I know that every dancer at both sessions with her shared her positive experience, and it was very special to see girls who didnít know each other create such a strong bond over shared passions. This was a result of the skilled and talented staff who touched the girls every day. Kudos to Shannon and everyone at ADTC. They far exceeded the expectations we had.
