"Emma loved your camp and is still talking about it. My husband introduced her to Scratch earlier this summer and she was not interested. Emma arrived home from camp and announced that she was using Scratch in camp. She began showing us what she created and has been programming with Scratch ever since." - Laurie Moyer, Summer Camp Parent
