"I wanted you to know how absolutely happy Alejandra returned: full of good experiences, wonderful new friendships, and best of all, so confident and enriched. The first thing she said: please next year I want to go 7 weeks. All the sports she practiced made her feel so capable, and we feel so proud of her for participating in the 4-on-the-Fourth race and the lake swim. That is what we wanted for her. Four weeks full of activities, fun, and learning, doing things that she can’t do during the rest of the year in this megacity (Mexico City)." - Current Tapawingo Parent
"Thank you so very much for making Emma’s first time away from home so enjoyable (and for her parents too!) Emma absolutely loves Camp Tapawingo and we can’t thank you enough for all you do for her and all the girls at Tap." - Current Tapawingo Parent
"Thanks for giving my daughter the opportunity to follow her dreams at Tapawingo. These past 8 summers have meant so much to her. She truly has evolved into an amazing young woman. Thank you for all that you do to make Tap such a special summer home for girls. Most importantly, thank you for your integrity. That’s what keeps the spirit of Tapawingo alive!" - Past Tapawingo Parent
"We can hardly believe that our family has "graduated" from Camp Tapawingo. We can’t begin to thank you enough for all that you have done for both of our girls, and for the wonderful experience that Tap provided. Their summers at camp enabled them to grow in so many ways and gave them the ability to be independent in a nurturing and loving environment. Tap will hold a special place in their hearts for the rest of their lives. We hope that some day future generations of our family can continue the Tap Tradition." - Past Tapawingo Parent
