What our families are saying...
Wow, we can't say enough about how amazingly awesome Mindful Makers camp is! My kids couldn't wait to get to camp every single morning and were super excited about all the exciting projects. The BEST part of Mindful Makers, is that when camp ends, all of the essential life skills they learned such as sewing, weaving, learning how to use a 3D printer, making things from paper/tape/felt, building a paper roller coaster can ALL be integrated into future creative projects at home. Mindful Makers camp plants the seed for creativity and innovation. Agnes and her staff are wonderful!

I like being here because it puts me in the happy attitude.

Your camp is the best going. The things the kids make are impressive and Vivienne is genuinely proud of her creations. She has done a number of other craft programs and yours is exceptional.
Mindful makers was their *favourite camp* last year. It started a year-long love of weaving (everyone in the neighbourhood and extended family got scarves for Christmas) and they still love to show off the precious treasures they created. They CANNOT WAIT for camp to start again. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I thought you would like to know that your camp was by far their favorite of the summer....they loved both weeks. I am definitely interested in PD Days and possibly March Break as well. They enjoyed all of the independence when it came to completing the crafts and loved that the leaders did not talk down to them or make them feel like babies. You are doing a great job! Thank you!!
First of all I have to tell you that your camp was the best one Yogi went to this summer (or any summer really). And I have several friends whose children went to Maker camp and we all feel the same way.
Great job to you and all your staff!
The boys loved their experience and have already said they want to go back next year.
I just had to send you an e-mail to let you know Cooper and his friends had the absolute best time at your camp! They have attended all kinds of camps over the years. Lego, Arts, Outdoors etc....and to be quite honest I was a little concerned they wouldn't enjoy yours.
Well to all of our (parents) surprise and wonderment they loved it the best I believe..as noted by their enthusiasm upon returning home with their treasures and stories. I hope the other moms forgive me for speaking on their behalf!
Thank you so very much for helping the children enjoy a new and exciting world! Keep doing whatever it is you are doing. It's a hit!
Ally had a wonderful time and she is looking forward to returning in August, even to do the same art again but improve her technique or make variations. It was the best art she has ever brought home from a camp - items worthy of going up on a wall or shelf rather than stored in a bin or reluctantly recycled when the pile of art starts to take over the room.
Thanks again for the incredible program and experience(s) for Kira. As both an Art Educator and a parent I was blown away by her excitement and passion to learn that kept growing each day.
Our son Phil loved every minute and it was clearly his favourite of the seven camps he did this summer. He’s already asking about returning next year…and our younger sons will no doubt want to participate when they are old enough.

The camp was AMAZING!! I think I was just as excited to see what she had done!
Well done! I have raved about your camp to anyone who will listen.
