  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • LOVE this place! It's the best place on the face of the entire planet! I went there for only like, a month, but the people there were so nice and the activities were so much fun I just had to write a review. If you're thinking about sending your kids there, send them instead of Marshdale (my brother went there. He said it was amazing but I could tell WJES was way better cuz I took a tour of both).
