Raskins Rock CGI
If they were to ever reward a family with the most impact a family could have on CGI through the decades it would have to go to the Raskins!!! Ari Raskin will no doubt be one of the greatest HCs CGI has ever seen!

Ari Raskin
I cannot think of a more appropriate choice for head counselor, discipline with love, he showed so much caring to my son in NOD, and patience that I wish I had...

They are lucky extremely to have ND Wichnin.
A more capable and caring person I have yet to encounter. My son benefitted tremendously from him in summers past, and I am looking forward to another wonderful Experience .
