“Thank you again for hosting us today! The kids were SO excited, so happy, and so exhausted after such a fun afternoon of swimming. A few years ago when we visited, I reminded a kid to pack her suit & towel and she said to me, “ I KNOW. I’ve only been looking forward to this all week! I appreciate UVAC’s openness to our group.”With gratitude, The Haven
