Business Review

"The DCL art camp was a tremendous camp and my son absolutely loved it! We were very impressed with how many different types of projects the students were exposed to and the quality of the portfolio by the end of the week. It was very well organized and your staff was friendly and efficient. We are really glad we decided to sign our son up for this camp."

"My kids loved this camp! They tried new food that they might not have eaten at home. Well organized and they said the instructors were great. Kudos to the staff for coming in the last day despite the bad weather. We'll definitely try another DCL camp in the future!"

"My daughter LOVED this camp! Everything about it was great — the communication, organization, agenda, age-appropriate, class size, student to teacher ratio. Great job! Thank you!"
