Five Star Reviews

Our friends have recommended this camp to us because their kids love it and beg to go back every summer. They've attended the St. Pat's location in Dallas. I can't speak to the camp experience yet, but the customer service on the front end was wonderful. They were easy to get in touch with - someone answered right away. I spoke with Cheyenne. She was warm and very knowledgeable. She answered all my questions (and there were a lot). Most importantly, it was clear that they strive to be inclusive and make sure each camper has the best experience.

KV offers an awesome experience for kids during summer camp. It's great to see such an organized and coordinated team take the lead with kids of all ages. Not only is it fun, but it allows kids to be in a safe and secure environment. Keep up the great work team!

My niece loved the camp. She came back smiling everyday. She is a little shy and that made me worry at first, but the counselors were very patient with her. They helped her interact with the other kids. Each time she came home, she described a new activity and I enjoyed seeing her so engage.

These camps are incredible and such a relief for us working parents who need childcare over the summer! I was concerned that my child was outgrowing the summer camp they were currently enrolled in as the activities were mostly geared towards smaller children, but then their school partnered with the Kidventure program and I can't say enough positive things about the experience! First and foremost, they are committed to your child's safety and have firm protocols in place to ensure that your child is safe. Next, the curriculum is very well-rounded - it is a balance of fun activities like trips to Typhoon Texas, Top Golf, Battlefield Houston, etc. along with service activities like volunteering at local food pantries or creating snack packs and hygiene kits for homeless individuals. Also, they do weekly group discussions that are centered around a core value such as trustworthiness, authentic communication, etc. I just love that this program balances character development and fun all into one curriculum. And the camp counselors are fantastic - so patient, enthusiastic, and kind! You can tell they genuinely enjoy being there for the kids! Finally, I appreciate that they have options for afternoon extended care for those of us who work and meal plans if you don't have time to pack lunches. Personally, I just signed my child up for pizza on Fridays, but you could sign up for meals every day of the week. Overall, you actually get your money's worth with this program. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Kidventure and hope that my child's school continues to partner with them! Would highly recommend!

Kidventure is an energetic group of counselors that have a fun-filled afterschool program packed with a variety of activities for all age groups. Students love the variety of games and schedules that keep them moving seamlessly throughout the late afternoon hours. Parents love the low student-to-teacher ratios, the added layer of security, and the continuous communication. Administration enjoys meeting with Kidventure on a regular basis, as faculty appreciates the guidance with homework and friendly staff.

-Bernadette L. Drabek, Head of School St. Rose of Lima

Kidventure Finale creates a safe, engaging, and fun afternoon environment for our students. Their low student-to-counselor ratio allows for close attention and personal connections and students can pursue interests through a variety of extra offerings through Encore. It’s been a well-received and great overall experience for our students.
Thanks.

-Thomas Day, Principal Travis Elementary H.I.S.D.
