Our granddaughter had a BLAST at Zaniac for the past two weeks! She was all smiles when she got back to the house today after her last class. Bob & I can’t wait till next summer when she joins us again for her 2 week vacation so she can attend ZANIAC! Knowing Kaylee, she will be teaching classes @ Zaniac before we know it! We are grateful to you and all your staff!!!”
— Bob & Linda Swanson
My son and daughter went to parents’ night out and had a blast! We are loving our classes at Zaniac too! So thankful Zaniac is in Asheville!”

My 6 year old child Zachary is loving Robotics camp.’ Mom, camp was so cool. I got to build a robot with my mind not a diagram. We used simple machines like levers and pulleys. You know mom, a wedge is a big long, triangle like a door stop.’ It's so exciting to have your child excited about learning. I highly recommend the camps. The small child teacher ratio is great!”
— Kirsten Tierney Cone
We were doing multiplication in small groups and when they finished, I checked their work. Laney did a great job and even did extra work that we hadn't covered yet. She showed me the long division she had done and I said, 'Wow! Good job!' She then told me that she had gone to Zaniac in the summer and learned lots during the Math camp.”

My son loved Tinkering camp! He learned tons of new terms and concepts, and was proud of how he used logic to solve problems rather than just following cookbook-type instructions to build circuits. The teachers were friendly and knowledgeable, and I was very grateful for the daily notes home explaining what the kids learned from each activity. It was fun picking Mitchell up each afternoon and having him proudly show me the Lego house he made and wired, the electric guitar built from construction paper, and the car with working door lights. We're so glad you came to Asheville, and can't wait to try another camp!”

My girls loved their experiences at Zaniac this summer. It's an incredibly welcoming and safe environment and felt that they were very well cared for. Both loved being immersed in STEM experiences that they were incredibly excited to share with us when they got home. They were beyond excited for Zaniac every morning. (STEM exploration & Fashion Design Camp) I would highly recommend Zaniac!”
— Meagan Harris
My son attended Zaniac for parents’ night out last weekend. He was talking about it all weekend and really enjoyed the format and meeting new friends! Can't wait for the summer camp, he is super excited!”
— Aimee Bush
My daughter attended the Game-Based Learning Minecraft camp last week and LOVED it! She is 9 and has two older brothers who also play the game. The camp really gave her the confidence to play in survival mode and compete with her brothers. Might seem unimportant - but to her it is a big deal. Lynne and all the staff were so welcoming. She takes a personal interest in each child and parent. This is not a daycare like other summer camps. I also like the way they make the children responsible for signing themselves in and out - not to mention the use of technology to check in. No paper sign in. Bravo Zaniac!”
— Kelli Brown Mullinix
Jack loved his first week so much he is back this week! He really liked his instructor, Jack, as well. I am not sure there is anything that you should do differently or better because all we heard were glowing reviews from our son.”
— Jamie Turner
Sam loved his experience. He wants me to cancel other day camps so he can return to Zaniac for another course. He was sad to conclude the very fun week. Sam gives his Zaniac week five stars and two thumbs up.”
— Anna Durham
Thank you Lynne and Reed for such a wonderful Birthday Party for Landen! He had the best time and he already can't wait until next year to do it again! You made it so easy for me as a parent, and you made my baby so happy! Win Win! Thank you! We love Zaniac!”
— Krista Norris
Compared to the other STEM-focused day camps, Zaniac had the best facilities, equipment, organization and staff. Sarah said the instructors were much more knowledgeable and had more advanced computer skills. Sarah enjoyed the Minecraft section the most. I appreciated the flexible hours for drop off and pick up.”
— Jim Clark
We took both kids to Parents night out and they were beyond thrilled. Usually, our 9 year old daughter finds something to complain about, not this time! We were told this ‘was the best time we ever had. Can we go back tomorrow?’ Win/Win in our household! Madelyn & Tyler will definitely be regulars!”
— Brandi Ward Melvin
Amanda really enjoyed the tinkering class. We purchased a set of the Little Bits and have been doing projects at home. I am surprised at her ability to independently problem solve and her creativity using the system. She also enjoys being the "teacher" for family members. She has a good grasp on the practical application of concepts learned in the tinkering class.”
— Joanne Latta
Jake and Luke had a fantastic time at camp last week. They very much enjoyed the staff and activities at Zaniac. Thank you for your fun and engaging classes. We are on vacation this week, however, I look forward to registering the boys for more classes in the near future. Many thanks again and all the best to you and the Zaniac team!”
— Melissa Beun
Wyatt had a wonderful time at Zaniac. He didn't want to leave each time we picked him up. He also didn't want camp to end. He hasn't given me much detail as to what he learned, but talked about building things and destroying them, which is one of his favorite things to do. He will be back!”
— Terra Marshall
Zaniac has been a fun way for our daughter to brush up on her academic skills this summer. She's had such a great experience this summer that we've decided to continue through the school year, so she can try out all of the classes! The staff are so kind, patient and well informed about what/how the kiddos are doing and what they're accomplishing. Love it.See you guys tomorrow!”
— Alisha Audeh
Our 7-year old son had an amazing time at Parent's night out. Staff tailored the night to his needs and made sure he had a fantastic time. He didn't want to leave at the end of the night. This was a great way to keep him engaged and give us a night out. Thank you Zaniac!”
— Samantha Krulewitz Kappalman
Tyler's progress report from the end of 6th grade showed that he is in need of more tutoring to catch up to the 7th grade level. Therefore I will be putting him in another 6 -week class in early August when we get back from July trip. We are happy Zanaic Learning has led to a large confidence boost. Thank you for everything and see you in August!”
— Richard C Herdrich Jr
Quinn had a great time last week! He even came home and spent much of his time at home doing the take home worksheets to work on his own computer. He loved it! Thanks so much for a great week! We'll see you next week too!”
— Beth Roberts
Lily LOVED the camp. We can't say enough about how great the experience was. We will be back!!! Thank you for an amazing week. ”
— Evelyn Beckee
Paul had a great experience last week in STEM quest. He seemed excited about what he learned and was able to do. He wanted to come early and leave late every day. He will be in camp again this week doing Minecraft MODS. Thank you for the opportunity to give you feedback. I have certainly recommended this to friends.”
— Diana Curran
My children did a week of summer camp at Zaniac and loved it. They both did half day and my son was begging me to stay for a full day. He was so intrigued by the 3D Printing process. Every day he learned how to design something new and then it was waiting for him when he arrived the next day, after being printed overnight! I was really impressed with the way they were able to identify my daughter's interests and find something that would captivate her as well. She is less interested in technology and STEM activities, yet they had her building stages with Legos & working lights and videoing a play that she created herself. The staff is very friendly and professional. I knew my children were in good hands.”
— Stephanie Carden Corcoran
David’s words are "great" "awesome" "I hope that I can do that again!" He came home every day talking about all that he was learning! As a parent, I really appreciated the notes from the instructors each day. It helped me engage him with specific details about the concepts being taught! Boys can sometimes speak in very short sentences. We are so grateful that you are available in our community providing this type of education; it's fun and challenging! We are looking at other opportunities in the future that will work with our schedule! Thanks! ”
— Michele Gaines
Our daughter went in with low confidence in her math abilities. She often talks about how she's not good at math. We were blown away today at her first Zane Math session. It was super specialized and she was truly excited to learn in this fun way!”
— Jill Schwarzkopf
Paige and Liv loves their time at Zaniac. Liv, 7- "I loved it! It's fun, you get to do 3D printing. I learned a lot of new things." Paige, 9 - "It was so fun. I loved 3D printing, being able to design my own clothes. The instructors are really nice." Both have come home from their Zaniac experience and immediately jumped back into the activities they were involved in during their camp. They were excited to show us their creations and everything they learned. Thank you for everything and we will be sure to be back!”
— Meagan Harris
My boys, 8 and 10, loved Zaniac. We participated in 3D Printing early in the summer. We have another week scheduled for Minecraft and STEM. My children wanted to arrive as soon as the camp opened, and did not want to be picked up until the latest I could pick them up. The staff was enthusiast and on top of their game. It was an awesome experience for my technologically savvy family.”
— Amanda Willhoite Teague
My 6 year old son and 8 year old daughter went to 3D printing camp at Zaniac for a week. It far exceeded my expectations in so many ways. My kids had such a great time that they were jumping out of the barely stopped car to get inside each morning! After each day of camp they couldn't get their words out fast enough to tell me all of the things they learned/made at camp. They created so many projects over the course of just one week and were able to tell me exactly what steps they took to create their 3D pieces! They've continued creating projects at home and are now teaching me!! I love that they've had fun learning a very relevant skill!”
— Sandy Fox Morton
My grandson, Philip, loved his time at Zaniac. Unfortunately, he lives in Atlanta. He spends time with us in the summer. He has already talked about the classes he would like to take next summer. You have a great program, a quality staff, and an attractive facility. Thank you. ”
— Lucy Greene
We are loving Zaniac!!! Cory is enjoying it tremendously. ”

We love the way that Susan can sign online from anywhere and download everything she needs to pick up where she left off.”
— Garrett C.
I wanted to let you know that Bajian has been raving about the class; how much fun she had with you and how she enjoyed learning new math skills. This morning, she explained the decimal placement and brought her homework to school to do during recess!!! Thank you for your help and making math fun.”
— Robin W.
I LOVE the email follow ups and direct links to assessments”
— Cindy L.
Emma and Connor loved the Minecraft camp today, and told us that they had so much fun with Ryan. I wasn’t sure about having them play Minecraft for the day, but Emma told us all that she had learned about architecture, natural resources and resource scarcity from the camp. Knowing that they would get to play Minecraft during their breaks made them even more excited to go to math camp today! Thanks for making learning fun for our kids.”
— Janice U.
Thanks, Alex. You are wonderful, and I truly appreciate your extra effort with Hayden today.”
— Jen H.
When Marcia got her first A in math it changed her whole attitude towards school, not just math. Thank You Zaniac!”
— Peter Z.
Evie actually enjoys learning math now!”
— Ariel F.
I really appreciate the time and effort that you invested in our son, Sam. Not only did you provide great education to him but fantastic feedback to us as parents. We, like most parents, think our children are exceptional but you confirmed it for us.”
