Here's what a past participant had to say:
"This workshop was the best I've been to. The planning was terrific, the experiences sequenced in a logical and exciting way, and the delivery of each of the 3 parts were so solid and educational. The girls had a great time, and learned a lot about construction concepts at the exact right level for their development.   Thank you so much."  - Dorothy C., Madison
