Happy Campers,
Happier Families!

We love Monarch Camp! My daughter (6) attended all summer and really got a lot out of it. The camp’s been around a long time, so they’ve got it all down pat. The counselors are all well-trained, young, friendly and energetic. They all seemed to know my daughter’s name. The complimentary before- and after-care was important to me as a working parent, because so many of the other camps I looked at didn’t accommodate my working schedule. The administration is responds promptly to emails, listens to feedback and tries to resolve any issues that may occur.

Brilliant! This was our first year doing summer camp – my son is six – and this was a really great, fun experience for him, and from our perspective very consistent and reliable.

Today is his last day of camp and on the way there this morning he said , “Daddy, next summer can we come to this camp again”. Can’t really get a better endorsement than that. All in all really good. We had plenty of uncertainty about how this would be, his first one and all that, but it was great and he really had a good time 🙂

My child has been attending Monarch Camp’s after school program for the past six weeks and I’ve been incredibly impressed with the program. He is picked up after school and brought to the facility on the campus of Los Angeles Valley College. The counselors are professional and enthusiastic. He gets help with home work and plenty of playtime, both structured and unstructured. Another great perk is that they offer full day programs on many days that LAUSD is closed. There’s so much to do and he always has a great time.
