“It was such a fun morning. I loved that we got on a boat with a great captain and two other families and met three new friends. Just a few minutes into the trip, all four kids were laughing and giggling and having the best time. We even exchanged numbers before we left so that we can get together for lunch or playdates. They giggled all through the boat ride and lunch and the awards and loved that ice cream sandwiches. It was just a really great morning. ” – Parent of Participant, Lake Thunderbird
“These children and families leave lasting impressions on everyone that works the event. The smiles mean the world to me.”- Shore Volunteer, Lake Thunderbird
