"Riotous Youth is one of the best summer camps in the region. My kids love 'the awesome teachers who make it really fun and include everyone'. As a parent, I love that they teach the kids to really understand the Shakespeare play performed, and perhaps most importantly, I love seeing the clear confidence boost my kids gain by the end of camp." -Riotous Youth Parent, Summer 2017
