Re: “Green Mountain Training Center

I sent my 9 year son to their Ninja warrior/parkour camp. After the first day, he came home exhausted. The next morning he was unable to lift his arms, and couldn't even lift his backpack, which only had his lunch box and water bottle in it. He begged me not to send him that day. I did keep him home, and when I called to tell them he wasn't coming, I had to call 5 times before anyone finally answered after 9:30. I had left a message the first time, but kept calling since they hadn't called back. When I did talk to someone, I was informed that "You need to rip muscle to build muscle". He was very rude when I told him that that attitude was inappropriate for a growing child. My son did enjoy the activities, and went back for Wednesday and Thursday, but was too sore to attend the final day of camp. I would not send him back.

Re: “Triple Combination Farm

Horrible experience. Quit this stable a few years ago right before Christmas. My 10 year old daughter asked her instructor Mary what she hoped Santa was bringing her for Christmas. The instructor (30 year old woman mind you) saw fit to tell my child that she didn't believe in Santa because her parents told her that he didn't exist. When confronted by my husband later, she defended her actions saying that she didn't lie to children. Since we try to keep jerks away from our kids, we discontinued lessons. BTW, this woman was one of the owners and is still there. One of other partners was perpetually grumpy and miserable and truly seemed to dislike kids. Unless you're the Grinch, avoid!!
