My grandson and I had a terrific time. There was a good balance of interesting activities and free time; the facility and lodgings were very nice; food was good and offered many options; and staff members were all friendly and helpful.

This was terrific week. The week was packed with interesting adventures. The group were avery nice and all of the grandchildren interacted well. I can't say anything but superlatives about the Kettunen center staff. They were very accommodating and were aware of special needs. A very kind staff. This is a perfect program for grandparent and grandchild
