Now that my daughter has lived this experience we have realized that the camp has many more things to offer young people, it is not just a simple vacation, we realize that it is for them to learn values ​​of coexistence, respect, humility and love with their peers.

The personal involvement and encouragement for the campers by the professional theatre staff and by the camp staff is remarkable. Both summers the rapport, respect, and joy in one another was so apparent among the campers and staff ….. We will always be grateful for CUWP and what it provided for our young person.

The experience was beyond expectations – and I am a ‘raving fan’, and don’t stop talking about CUWP with friends and family. Such a rich experience for youngsters between 13 and 17!
