I think this was actually a very difficult trip for me. First time without my kids. But you gave them so much support they got through it & loved it! I’m so glad we decided to send them & now open to many more adventures for them. I am seeing a new Aanya. She is supremely confident & folding all her clothes. She made so many new friends & met new people & absolutely loved being independent. I am also very proud of Aadhya for conquering her fears. She never goes to anyone place for sleepovers(including my sisters place), so this was a big deal for her. And the best thing both the girls absolutely loved the trip. They have been talking non-stop about all their adventures. They told me how kind & supportive you were throughout the trip. So thank you from the bottom of my heart!🤗
“I have a conviction that a few weeks spent in a well-organized summer camp may be of more value
educationally than a whole year of formal school work.”
Home far away from home was just a common phrase for me but it started having a meaning when i went to LES ELFES for the second time. it’s the place, the people, the campus and specially the staff. As soon as i stepped inside the campus all the previous memories came rushing back to me and gave me nostalgia. Being an intern, this time I learnt even more & made even more memories for a lifetime. It taught me so many life skills which will help me throughout my life. meeting so many new people from all parts of the world gives you knowledge about other cultures and beliefs. i personally have developed such an amazing relationship with my councillors and other staff members that it actually feels like second home. The place is always full of excitement, love, happiness and positivity and that is why I love it & I want to keep going back there time and again.
Thank you very much for the most amazing first time experience my daughter has had for skiing and the most wonderful time on this camp. She is back with memories and friends for a lifetime. She can’t stop sharing all her fun moments about this trip. Def she seems to have come back more confident and ready to take on many more such challenges. Overall she is super happy .
Thank you for taking such good care of Aashvi. She came back confident and risk taking. She feared heights and wouldn’t try zip line or anything earlier but after the camp, she willingly signed up for parasailing, did the ropes park in Interlaken and is voicing her opinions really well.Will definitely send her next year again for sure!
