In Their Words...

Greg, I want to let you know how much Daniel enjoyed anatomy camp. He enjoyed the academic challenges, the camaraderie with his fellow campers, and the activities. Daniel came home with many stories to tell and he told them with great enthusiasm, listing off names of muscles, talking about digging in the lobster pot, sharing snippets about his great roommate and counselor and on and on."

 

"I am prompted to write you because a few days ago something we were doing reminded Daniel of anatomy camp and he said suddenly, with great feeling, "I had so much fun at anatomy camp. That was such a good time." It made me very thankful for the good experience you put together for the campers. Thank you for your hard work and organization. Thanks also to your family who stands behind you on this. I hope you are having a few weeks of rest before the academic year begins."

God bless you,

Jenni

"Greg, My son, Andrew, is at the camp.  I spoke with him tonight and he said on a scale of 1-10 the camp is a 10+.  Thank you!"

"Wow! c-sections, lungs, fetal calves, bull testicles, peeing in a cup, eating ice cream for breakfast, brains, hearts, tracheas, blood typing, hematocrit, buffy coats, glucose tolerance tests, lung functions tests, learning the ins and outs of getting through college and into med school, and lots of new friends who love anatomy and physiology! What else could a girl ask for? I have more focus and determination to get into med school now than ever before. I could have stayed for a month."

"Greg, I can't tell you how much Abigail and Kim enjoyed your camp. They just can't say enough about it! They definitely desire to return to another or more camps. If we participate in the fall, it would probably have to be a weekend as Kim will be taking community college classes....unless they allow for excused absences. Just please keep us informed on what your

thoughts and plans are."

 

"Again, the week was such a blessing and answer to prayer. And from our conversations with the girls, they experienced and learned so many things .....about academics, rules, freedoms, honesty, friendship...just to name a few. Thank you for providing such an atmosphere for them to experience and learn and grow. Good luck with the rest of this week at camp! I hope you are getting some rest! Ha...is that possible on campus with all that

youthful energy?????"

(Mom of Campers)

"Greg, ...your orientation toward training students to be researchers and critical thinkers is just what our girls needed. It has also spilled over into how they approach history and literature..."

Carol

"Greg, ...what you did for our daughter will have far reaching effects. You showed her that learning can be enjoyable..."
_____

"Greg,... your teaching motivates my kids like no teacher ever has. Thank you for bringing some joy back in to our homeschooling."

"Hey Greg, we made it back to Saint Louis and I totaled our miles driven this past week: 1,600!!! That's dedication to my lovely daughter. : ) She had an INCREDIBLE time at Camp and really she talked about it non-stop for at least the first 200 miles. We're still hearing stories and I know this was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for her in so many ways. Thank you for making it happen."

"Greg, I want to let you know how much we appreciate the session on academic excellence you did last week. Both Maggie and Mason were encouraged and motivated. Thank you for the obvious time and effort you put into making it a meaningful and practical guide."

"Reading over their notes and your outline made me recommit to doing my work as a wife, mother, and teacher as an act of service to the Lord. What a blessing it is to have fellow homeschoolers like your family to be such support and encouragement to us!

Thank you. Blessings to you."

"Greg, thank you so much for allowing our daughter this opportunity to

experience first hand what could hopefully be her career in the future. We both felt a genuine kindren and care from you for the kids. We appreciate the structure and guidance you offered. It allowed us to feel that our daughter was safe with you. Thanks again."

(Dad and Mom of June 2009 Camp Attendee)

"Greg, For the 2 hours it took to drive to the airport, those girls talked and talked and talked. So much was  discussed, both about what happened in the labs and the fun they had in town. The balance of work and play was perfect and key for it to be a successful experience. No one complained about the homework either."

 

"Kelsey was particularly impressed by how easy going and relaxed you were, along with your ability to make the subject so much fun to learn. She wished she had brought the sheep fetus home. Thanks again. Hope you have a fun summer."

Barbara

"Hi Greg, I meant to write you before now. We just wanted to let you know how much Rebecca enjoyed camp!! She is still telling us stories and sharing her new knowledge of anatomy. She has shared pictures via email with the new friends she made there and was thrilled to be among students who shared similar interests. We couldn't have asked for a better experience for her! And the ride with the Jenkins worked out wonderfully!"

 

"We thank you for all of that but most of all for giving us the reassurance of her being in a safe, Christian environment. We will let everyone here know about your program so you can be expecting a few more south Florida students in the future! Thanks again and many blessings."

Greetings,

I'm very excited about this camp! It is a unique opportunity for students to be immersed in the world of medicine / anatomy & physiology. Whether you have a student who already has an interest in a medical field or anatomy and physiology, or a student who just wants to explore science, they'll love this camp. And, they'll come away with a great experience and an understanding of medical fields and anatomy and physiology. And, we'll also discuss the famous "life lessons from the cadaver lab"!

We'll breathe, eat, sleep, work, and play medical anatomy and physiology... and have lots of fun in the process. Your student will be well supervised by me and other homeschooling parents.

 

Please don't hesitate to email me or call me if you have questions.
