Summer Camp Reviews & F.A.Q.s

2024 Summer Camp Registration opens January 17 @ 10 AM


By the way I am very impressed and happy with this camp and will be back in the future!

Thank you for creating such a great experience. L is 5 years old and this is his first year here.

Also is there someone I can reach out to for feedback on his swim skills?  I would like to amp up his swim and wanted to see if there could be an assessment of his swim skills for strawberry swim.

thank you! C.S


Hi Marco,
Just wanted to drop a note and let you know what a great camp experience F is having. We have tried many over the years and this is the first she has been really excited about. It’s a testament to you and your staff and I really appreciate that.

Have a wonderful day!


My kids, J (group 6) and A (group 3), are enjoying camp so much and are begging to go an additional week. Do you happen to have the week of July 17 available? It was booked when I initially signed up. If not, any other week in July?



Hi Marco,

I just wanted to say what a fun time the kids had at Strawberry Rec Camp 1. We didn’t know what to expect and you all exceeded any expectations we could have had. It was a lot of fun for the girls (and I’m sure all the campers, and likely even the counselors.) I know you put a TON of work into these. Thanks for making it super special!

Hi Marco!

My daughter L has been loving camp!

We are flying out to Minnesota on Friday and I wanted to pick her up around 1pm. Would she still be able to complete the egg drop?

Thanks so much,



Hi Marco!

I just wanted to send a quick message your way after J first week of full day camp. I want to thank you so much for putting on such a great program! J has loved every moment of it. I had anticipated that it might be a hard adjustment to something full day but he comes home in a great mood and telling stories from his day – I can see that he is engaged and well supported. I can’t tell you how meaningful this is to our family. I whole heartedly thank you!

I don’t know if your wife has delivered yet, but I wish joy and happiness in this next chapter!



You’re running a very popular show over there 🙂  Z having an amazing time – she especially loves all the counselors.  Thank you for a great summer.


Hi there,

My son W was in camp with y’all last week. He LOVED it and hasn’t stopped talking about it since. He cried at camp drop off this morning because it was not strawberry rec camp…

Soo do you have space for him to join next week by any chance? Haha 🙂




P.S. M was all pumped up when he got home yesterday – must’ve been an extra fun day at camp. Thanks for doing such a great job! 🙂
