Dear SMA Staff – We wanted to drop you a note and thank you. Julianne had an incredible experience at SMA this summer. This was her first time at an overnight camp and she was so nervous about making friends and fitting in. Your staff and the returning campers at SMA made her feel so welcome - the SMA camp experience could not have been better for her. Thanks for all that you do for kids!

Dear Jud, Anne, Wyatt, Molly, Pam and Biff – Thank you for the very excellent camp experience you provided for Sam. I don't know how you make the magic that creates the unforgettable experience, but you do. Sam was not very excited about coming to SMA but it turns out that he had an incredible experience. He loved wakeboarding and made so many friends. He is already counting the days until next summer!

Dear SMA - At first I did not want to come to camp and I thought that it was not going to be that much fun. After just a few days, I was having an amazing time. I had a lot of new friends and was really comfortable at SMA. My faviorate activities were wakeboarding and white water rafting.

SMA is an amazing summer camp. I made so many new friends. I tried so many activities that I never expected to do and pushed my comfort zone. SMA is an awesome place that I will always love. -- Kayla, Westfield, NY
Dear Jud, Anne and the SMA Staff, I came to SMA not knowing anyone and was sure I would be homesick and want to go home after the first week, but I could not have been more wrong. Everyone made me feel welcome, I made friends so quickly and the activities were awesome. SMA is like my home away from home!
