NETC Update 
The time has flown by since camp ended in August. We're busy getting ready for NETC '09 - hiring staff, mailing brochures, etc. Keep in mind that the Early Registration Discount for 2008 Returning Campers has been extended through January 15. Take advantage of this opportunity to save $200 per session on your 2009 tuition. For the summer of 2009 we are offering three sessions - June 28 - July 10, July 12 - 24, and July 26 - August 7. I look forward to seeing everyone next summer! I hope you enjoy all the photos!
