What People Have To Say

This weekend was our first time, and definitely not the last. We attended Tiger Growl and my son had an amazing time! Probably the most memorable weekend of his life! The staff was outstanding! The food was wonderful! The place is absolutely beautiful! Thank you for an unforgettable weekend and we will see ya next time!

Angela Danner

We had the most amazing experience with our Troop [at Summer Camp]. During class time while instructing the First Aid Merit Badge, we noticed your Staff’s ability to project enthusiasm and turn a dull subject into something the Scouts thoroughly enjoyed. We’ve been to many camps across the country (Scout camps and regular camps alike) and NEVER have we come across such a joyful, talented, and involved [staff]. We will definitely be coming back next year!

Luke H.

The staff at the camp were all great! I witnessed 3 different staff members tending to children who were either lost or hurt and they did such a nice job with them. Very well run organization! We had a great time!!
