NiCOLE DEPAOLA and ALBERT BALCELLS
I wanted to send a note to thank you both so much for including Laia and Sofia in the NxJ Summer Camp. I was reflecting with Albert and Marisol last night and this morning about how much they grew and learned from the camp. The consistent reading every day with the library, the exposure to mandarin & their swimming…it all improved.
The balance between academics with structure and free, choice, fun time created a balance that no other camp has. Laia even found a new love in basketball. What really stood out was the social/emotional growth. Laia improved in a group/team setting, collaborating & sharing. Sofia’s grit and perseverance improved, before she would cry and now she’s getting up and trying things again. It’s all really incredible. No other camp would they grow like this. The Coronitas/Smurf yesterday was such a great ending to it all and how our culture can translate over to the kids.
