This camp provides children and teenagers with special needs a place to be the kid they deserve to be. There are no limitations placed on the campers, no child is ever told "You can't do that". If there is a will to do something for the camper, the staff makes it happen. Wheelchair children have jump roped and played endless games of soccer. Kids have learned how to care for their own daily needs. The camp truly provides an enriching environment for their campers.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the growth it provides it campers by providing them with a place that makes dreams come true.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
make it so it serves older campers. Right now it serves 7-17 year olds. I would love to see it serve until 25 or older.
