To begin, I just wanted to say what a great time Max had at camp last week! He thoroughly enjoyed himself and was still talking about it today on our way to soccer camp!!! From my perspective, I cannot tell you how impressed I am with the staff. They are so enthusiastic and excited - it is literally contagious as you can see it in all of the kids faces at both drop off and pick-up! So thank you and congrats to your entire team!
I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic job I think you guys do at NT baseball camp! My son Noah was there last week. He had been a few years ago and loved it, and really wanted to go back.
Your staff is phenomenal! They really make an effort to make the kids feel welcome and have a great time. I know that this is not actually the experience he has had at all the camps he goes to, and I think it makes all the difference!
Please pass along my gratitude to your fabulous staff, you guys run a first rate program, and we will be back! He wishes he was back this week, and not where he is!!
Just got home and had to write you all about what an amazing week Ahren, Logan, Chase, and Tim had. Again this year I am truly staggered by the unbelievable rapport you build with the kids and the level of instructional expertise you've offered them. As a teacher and mom to 3 boys, I have truly never seen anything like this. You inspired Logan so dramatically last year that his select NT involvement this year (abandoning his diehard Leaside allegiance) is a direct result of who you are as people. Logan has again announced his intent to become 'just like you guys', not just as a ball-player, but as a coach and all-round 'grown up'. Now you've inspired Ahren in the same way. Ahren announced in the van just now that he will try-out for A or Select baseball next season and will find out about becoming a CIT with you next summer.
Honestly, kudos to you all — you have found the magic. If only we teachers could take a lesson from all of you, I can only imagine what would be possible in the classroom.
Truly, thank you. Have an incredible summer!
I want to thank you for two wonderful weeks of baseball for my son. Your staff and program were outstanding. Ezra learned so much and his skills improved greatly. But more importantly, he had a wonderful time, felt connected to and loved by his counsellors, and was proud of his accomplishments. Ezra is small for his age and often has to work harder to keep up with kids that are bigger than him. At NTBC, he could shine and was even recognized for his hard work (MIP :)). It made him feel so special.
Thank you all for providing an amazing, joyful experience for him!
Julia and Jonathan,
After having had the time to read through Issy Teddy and Luke's scouting reports, I continue to be SO impressed at the enthusiasm, fun, kindness and encouragement you and your staff inject into NT baseball camp. All 3 kids had a terrific time last week and will surely be back.
My son Sam was in your session the week of August 9 to 13. I wanted to give you a quick note to say that Sam had an absolutely fantastic week. Every night he came home with a new skill and was anxious to demonstrate what he had learned. The attention he received and the great feedback he received from you and the other coaches was tremendous for building his confidence. As you noticed, Sam has a lot of fun playing and wants to be the best player he can be. I found your Skills Evaluation form very specific and very focused, which means you were paying attention to what he does well and where he needs to improve. We read it to him on the car ride up to the cottage on Friday and he identified with all the feedback for improvement. He had a big smile when you called him "All Star of the Week".
Thanks again for making this a special summer for Sam. See you next year.
Our son Justin attended the NT Baseball camp in one of the hottest weeks all summer! Even with the scorching temperatures he was excited to go to camp everyday with no complaints. He LOVED it. Justin tells us he learned more at 1 week of camp than he did all season with his baseball team. He learned so much that he was "star of the game" the week of baseball camp!! Thanks to all the guys - it was a fantastic week and we look forward to doing a couple of weeks next year.
I have to tell you just how much Harrison loved the camp. You guys did a great job, were fantastic with the kids and the 'report cards' you handed out were really helpful. Harrison, as you know, is fairly new to baseball but has really developed a taste for the game and you guys just made it all the better for him. He has read the report card over and over. Thanks again for a great two weeks.
Just a note to say WOW! Connor had a blast this week at baseball camp! You guys put on a great camp and really know how to work with all the kids, at every age and every level. Connor has such a love for the game and this week was perfect for him! He'll be back next year for sure! For Connor, this week was truly unforgettable... "Mom, Dice K is a coach" (you know he's a huge Red Sox fan) to the secret hand shake with Gabe and a big thanks to Simon for the shades! Thanks guys... you're the best! I always like to tell people when they've done a great job... especially when it comes to my kids!
Noah had the most amazing time. He absolutely loved your camp. I just wanted to reach out and let you know how profoundly Noah was affected by the wonderful program and amazing staff. Last night Noah woke up briefly in the middle of the night and was singing the flag football chant he learned and he told me how much he missed the guys. He will definitely be spending more time with your camp next year.
Benjamin had an amazing week at flag football camp and is definitely looking forward to returning next summer! He would love to be back for either week 4 or 5 but unfortunately we leave for vacation tomorrow morning. From everything we can tell from Benjamin's commentary the camp was well-organized and he certainly learned a great deal and had a lot of fun in the process!
Enjoy the rest of the summer and we look forward to enrolling again for next summer.
