What parents and participants are saying about our programs, summer camps, and events...


It’s not enough for us to tell you about Guardian Adventures. Read on and discover what others say about our classes, camps, and birthday parties.

“My son is shy and doesn’t like many physical activities. At Guardian Adventures, he is physically active, using his imagination, making friends, and learning teamwork in a non-competitive environment. It’s great to see him unplugged and excited to go.”

Evan’s Mom

“My boys, ages 14 and 12, are in their 5th year at Guardian Adventures. I can’t say enough about the classes, and most importantly the instructors. They are great role models for the kids. Through their efforts, the kids utilize their imagination, building their leadership and social skills.”

Penny Nichols-Cordero

“As a mother who is interested in education, I have enough experiences about kid’s camp. Nevertheless, this Mission to Mars experience has been better than I expected. The quality of the program was outstanding. I understand how challenging it is to keep kids interested in various subjects. However, you have succeeded! You did such a great job!”

Joohan’s Mom

“I wanted to tell you how much we appreciated everything you did for Jacob’s birthday party.  My son was thrilled with the entire process.  Being part of the initial planning meeting meant the world to him.  Then to see the completed party based on his initial thoughts brought him great satisfaction.  The party was a blast, the kids had a great time.  The staff were exceptional with the kids.  When asked later that day how his day was.  Jacob, after thinking for a moment said “Amazing.”

Stacey Pimentel

“All of my children have taken classes at Guardian Adventures and loved the experience. The group of homeschoolers we join weekly to  have all told me that their children can’t wait for the next class.  The place is warm and inviting, and the instructors are terrific! They really know how to play with the kids and teach them through interactive games that thoroughly engage their minds and bodies.”

Leyla Herbawi

I’d like to thank Guardian Adventures’s instructors and Harvard’s professors  for leading our children in such good programs.  Not only was it a well-organized program.  This was the best camp so far:  children learned valuable leadership skills, and the instructors truly listened to the voices of children! I thank you with all of my heart!”

Jihoo’s Mom

“As you may already know, Kevin has decided to attend the Coast Guard Academy for college. I know that you played a significant role in his choice of schools. The teamwork and guardianship role that Guard Up fosters is the same as in the Coast Guard, so I think it’s no coincidence for him to go down this path.

For over 10 years, we have been part of the Guard Up community. Bottom line is, you helped us teach him valuable lessons and life skills, from his first one-week summer camp as a 1st grader to JIT (Junior Instructor) to Monster Camper to AI (Assistant Instructor) in 12th grade. Thank you! The world is a better place because of the work that you do, and the young people that come out of your program.”

From Camper To Counselor…

“It’s really rewarding to be able to give back to the kids the camping experience that I had that shaped me so much and gave me some lifelong friends that I still talk to every day,” – John Cordero

We spent the last 2 summers sampling different summer camps. This one topped ALL the others, by *FAR*! My child loved the costumes, stories, and action; I loved the values emphasized and the way the camp was generally run. The kids ARE “Heroes” here, not just Campers. We’ll be coming back for more weeks next summer, no question!  And I LOVED playing a parent Zombie on the Feast of Heroes day! 🙂  Janice Ritter

(I) Just spent four weeks as a CIT (Monster Camper) and had a blast. This camp keeps you on your toes, and it’s just as fun behind-the-scenes as it is to be a hero! Definitely recommended to any teen who loves telling stories, acting, or just being around kids!  Madison Garland

As parent of one of the campers, Rob Perry, I can only say how much we thank everyone Staff, CIT’s and campers from making Rob’s experience so wonderful! He loved camp and made many new friends. It was great to see him interacting with everyone and hearing how much he was liked and liked everyone in return! Thank you again! Rob is already planning for next year!

My son had a great time, probably even better than last year! Thank you so much–get some rest and see you next year! April Polant

Discovering Guardian Adventures has been a blessing! From our first interaction for our son’s birthday to last year’s summer experience in Burlington to the school vacation weeks and now Quest camp he has loved every second of it. The people are wonderful, the program is exciting and engaging. I would highly recommend Guardian Adventures to anyone who has a child with an active imagination and a love of stories. Christopher is anxiously waiting for his next quest! Thank you, thank you for such a wonderful program!  Milaina Vitiello Mainieri

I will say that one thing I noticed was the forming of relationships between campers that seems to have lasted beyond [Zombie and Wizards & Warriors] Camp and how nice that is (especially with some of the girls – though I have boys myself, i enjoy seeing the girls flourish in this atmosphere, I think it speaks to a need for an alternative to stereotypical ‘girl’ activity.) Martha C.

After his first day at Wizards & Warrior camp my son said, “Mom, that was the best day of my entire life.”  What a great experience!  Huzzah! What a great experience for my two kids. Nate and Eliza will definitely be back. We appreciate the energy, creativity and passion that all of you pour forth into creating a truly memorable experience. I’m not sure who’s sadder that it’s over — me or them!  Cammy Bean

Amazing!! It was incredibly fun!! Waking up, getting breakfast, then fighting. The food was good. The feast was amazing. It was addictingly FUN. Liam W.C.

Camp is awesome! I remember, waking up in the morning prepared for the battle. The food was great. Especially the feast, that was on the last day. I liked making my own character. The epic adventure was amazing. Overall, I thought it was 100% fun. Jared R.

Although already a teen, our daughter had never gone to sleep-away camp before, so we were a little nervous. But she was so excited about going, we just crossed our fingers and hoped for the best. We needn’t have worried. She had a wonderful time, made some good friends, loved the food, and was on the go the whole time! With all the activity, she even slept, in spite of her efforts not to. She can’t wait until next summer, and we’re happy to send her back. Janet B.

Going to Wizards & Warriors Camp is the best camp experience my son has ever had! He can’t wait to go back!!!  My son Ryan, is usually the brainiac who no one really knows at home, but when we went to camp for the feast and heard he stood up in front of everyone to defend a spirit who no one else believed in and changed the minds of the rest, he experienced what I knew he could accomplish. Everyone was telling him how brave he was and that what he did and how he did it was wonderful. I always knew my son could do wonderful things, but I was just the mom, I’m supposed to say that. But this camp allowed him to show himself. I can’t tell you how important that is and will be to him. Thank you so much for giving him this opportunity. You are so right it is not just a camp, he has been to many of those. It is an opportunity for a child or a teen to reach a potential that otherwise may go unnoticed. I know it is sappy, but it is so true.  Marianne Murphy Harris

Justin said this was the best camp he’s ever attended–and he’s attended at least 10 different camps in the past 4 summers. Thank you so much for making the magic happen! We’ll be back for all 4 weeks next year! Jillian Lokere

My son Andy was a first timer along with Nate and Eliza… on the last day he got in the car and firmly announced “Mom, next year I will be coming to Wizards and Warriors camp every week!”. He had such a great experience at camp! Thank you! Karen Tribble Sheldon
