I want to thank you for the great week my daughter, Madeline, had at camp. She really enjoyed every aspect of the camp in Melrose and we are so happy about all you were able to squeeze into a day. It is quite obvious that you know how to run a fun, well-organized camp where kids are really learning and polishing skills. Thanks again.

Sincerely, Maryann Bouchard

This was my best week of summer. I love basketball and love playing the Behn Camp Coaches. James and Jen are the best.  I promise I'm working on my freethrows to show you next summer!
