"He loved doing "real" activities." -Little House: Wilders Homestead Parent, Age 6

"I really thought Silent Wednesday was a great idea." -Middle Earth Parent, Age 5

"The elf pouch is a huge hit and will likely be worn all summer." -Faeries, Elves and Mostly Friendly Dragons Parent, Age 4

"We always love Trackers" - it's the only camp we chose to do this summer. I definitely noticed it's expanding, but that hasn't seemed to affect the quality of the experience. We loved Silent Wednesday- what a great idea!" -Forest, Fishing, Fly and Reel Parent, Age 6

"He chose Forest Ninja and has come home each afternoon Filthy, Tired and very impressed with his new Stealth Ninja Skills!" -Forest Ninja Parent, Age 9

"He said on Wednesday that we was excited for 'another exhausting day at Trackers'." -Forest Ninja Parent, Age 7

"This has been the best camp! And, we've gone to a few! I have been telling everyone about it. I don't think you could have developed a more perfect camp experience for my son. Seriously… Honestly, I cannot think of enough words to describe how great this week was for Ethan. He was engaged, enthusiastic and exhausted at the end of the day. The storyline that his group developed was amazing and kept him thinking and connecting every night. I love the enthusiasm of Stewart. The patience and guidance he has with kids is inspiring. He has the ability to command a group of excitable kids safely and in a way that gets them thinking, creating and using their imaginations-- which is an under utilized skill (in my opinion). I loved how he made the whole camp adaptable to what the kids were interested in, and had the flexibility to flow with it. Fantastic job you guys!!!" -Forest Ninja Parent, Age 6

"Excellent--My daughter is a Forest Ninja. And has promised to use her newfound powers for the good of the world." -Forest Ninja Parent, Age 8

"Tell us about our staff… they radiate serenity and competence." -Forest Ninja Parent, Age 8

"This camp was outstanding. It exceeded our expectations and it was a great value. We look forward to exploring more of what NW Trackers has to offer." -Little House: Wilders Homestead Parent, Age 8

"The program has really grown since we attended 2 summers ago. It seems to have retained much of the character and ethos-- although parking is much tougher. Staff is well-trained and the scope and variety of activities and experiences is stunning… I see this story evolving as she grows. We're glad you exist. Keep it up!" -Little House: Wilders Homestead Parent, Age 7

"This camp is seriously a FULL week of doings!" -Little House: Wilders Homestead Parent, Age 8

"Smooth." -Little House: Wilders Homestead Parent, Age 8

"There's simply no other camp like Trackers. Every day my children do something amazing. They shoot bows and arrows, go fishing, milk goats and even make apple cider. All this is done with the utmost competence and care of the instructors. Trackers often feels more like a part of our family than just a camp." -Parent

"I just loved that my daughter was getting to all the things I did as a child." -Parent

"I feel like Trackers is the perfect fit for my kid.  He would much rather be shooting a bow and arrow or fishing in a lake than doing some of the more mainstream stuff he is exposed to through his school peers and neighborhood friends, like video games and team sports.  He's a quirky kid and Trackers thrills him." -Parent

"Everyone was patient and friendly, especially with the kids." -Parent

"There's simply no other camp like Trackers. Every day my children do something amazing. They shoot bows and arrows, go fishing, milk goats and even make apple cider.

"So creative and engaging on a level that was perfect for them." -Parent

"I was blown away by what our class accomplished. The instructors set high expectations and then helped my students rise to the occasion. From blacksmithing to survival skills, we did so much this week... The instructors were real with my students while also being completely professional. That's a balance you don't see very often." -8th grade teacher

"My kids get a chance to be free and outside. That doesn't mean the program is unstructured, it means the instructors have an incredible ability to listen to the kids they're working with… I can't think of anything better than that."-Parent

"Hands-on learning with a dose of humor." -Parent
