    2008 Camp update:
    WOW! We had a wonderful program for the 8th year in a row. This year among our students, we had two returning students and two other children who's siblings had previously been part of the program in years past....Thank you parents once again, for traveling long distances and sharing your children with us and for letting us be part of a wonderful and fun lifetime memory.

    2009 Camp Update:
    The 2009 program was great! This year, we had a group of really terrific children and some of which were relatives of previous campers. We are thankful for this year's program and the children we had the opportunity to meet. We ask the children to please stay in touch with us!

    2010 Camp Update:
    The 2010 program was best summed up by an unsolicited thank-you received from a parent.
    Thank you for all your love, knowledge and devotion to Michaela, as well as all the other children. She has learned so much. She will always remember what you have taught her and what a great time she has had at etiquette camp. She will have great memories from this summer.
    We know this will be an education that will go with her throughout her life. She may be too young to realize the importance of this now, but she will be thankful when she is grown. We truly feel this is an investment in her future. Blessing to you always.

    2011 Camp Update:
    The 2011 program was another great year! Jammed packed with fun learning activities that help children with their social skills....what we term "polish." Thank you parents for bringing your children and some a great distance! Please stay connected with us!

    At this point, there are no summer camps scheduled for 2017. If you would like a camp to come to your area, please contact us at 843-207-1025 to discuss the possibility.
