"Excellent overall - it is amazing that this camp is always one of our children's favorites, usually preferred to their sports and outdoors camps (which they also like)."

— James Mittleberger, parent of repeat Public Speaking Institute campers

"(The Personal Statement teacher, Ben) is "the man" - in class and after, when playing soccer or Frisbee. He spent hours brainstorming with me and broadening my essay writing skills."
