“The Activ8 camp experience this summer was top notch! It was our very first year and everything from the initial registration process all the way through the staff level’s engagement and support was very impressive. The facilities were pristine and the camp staff were welcoming and very attentive. Our only other experience has been through the conservatory and although we have had positive experiences with that program, the Active8 camp staff were in a league of their own! Great job recruiting staff that obviously love children and love what they do!”
–Kristin Campbell


“Activ8 is a great program. My kids loved it! They never complained of being bored or asked to take their electronic devices with them. The programs are interactive and kept my children happy throughout the summer. The online registration was simple and fast. Thanks CSU for offering this program and helping my children to have “the best summer ever”. These were their exact words!”
