Tracy and Allen registered their son and daughter into several of our programs over the last couple of years as a way to introduce them to sport while also allowing them to gain life-long skills. After seeing the positive changes in their two children, the family felt compelled to write the following letter.
I am writing to you regarding your summer camp programs and your ski and snowboard lessons. This letter should have come last season, but nevertheless, I feel even more compelled to write this after my children’s experience this year at their summer camps. My kids have participated in many activities and programs at WinSport over the past few years.
They’ve taken skating lessons and ski/snowboard lessons and during the summer months and participated in your mountain bike camps, sport & adventure camps and a hockey camp. Every single camp has been exceptional! My kids come home tired (which is a good thing) and happy. They talk about all the exciting things they’ve done throughout the day and how great all of their instructors/leaders have been. My children have had so many leaders and instructors at WinSport that have made such an impact on their love of sport and their desire to try new things. My son cannot wait for winter to come so he can do another snowboard lesson! My daughter is sad that her summer camp is over and can’t wait until next summer! For this reason, I must mention some of the amazing staff you have employed.
My daughter, Paige, had amazing bike camp instructors over the past two years who had such an impact on Paige. Paige’s confidence soared and the instructor was so much fun for the girls in her group. Paige also had a wonderful caring leader in her Sport & Adventure camp this year – her name is Alicia.
My daughter told me today that the worst part about her camp ending was leaving Alicia! This speaks volumes! Carson was my son’s snowboard instructor last year. Zach, my son, took level 1 and 2 preschool snowboard lessons. Now, he can’t get enough of it! He still often talks about Carson and hopes that he gets him this season for level 3. Carson was an amazing role model for my son. He instilled such a love of the sport and we couldn’t thank him enough! This summer, Zach had a wonderful biking camp leader who was so patient and caring. He built up Zach’s confidence and because of that, my son now also has a love for biking.
I just wanted to let you know that we are so happy with your facility, programs and staff. You have a first class facility and we absolutely enjoy every moment experiencing it. I want to thank your staff that my children had an amazing time this summer and that they can’t wait to come back and take part in many other programs.
