Testimonials

My daughter was a little hesitant to go to etiquette camp, but at the end of the first day she told me she loved it. She not only enjoyed every day at camp but also had a lot of fun learning about good manners. She even wants to do etiquette camp next summer.

We were a little hesitant entering our son into the Essential Manners Summer Camp as he is typically all about sports. But all uncertainty was forgotten the moment we entered the camp. Everyone (students and parents) were greeted with smiles and treated with respect. After one day of class our son was chatting about how much he enjoyed the topics the teachers presented in the class. From tying a tie, to solid handshakes, to setting a table he thoroughly enjoyed the entire class and all that it had to offer.

Your camp was incredible! My dad noticed an improvement right away with my girls. And, when we went to a dinner party, I got a "good job, mom!" from an older woman after my daughter waited politely for me to finish speaking before she asked a question. It was a first :). Not to mention, they had fun and no complaints! Thank you so much!!

My three girls talk about your class often. I see them trying to remember different rules etc. all the time. We took them to the Sorrento for Christmas dinner and it is the first time since camp that they had seen a proper table setting and they were so excited for "courses". I have also seen changes in them in how they address adults when being introduced etc. They definitely learned some lifelong tools with you.
