This organization is an inspiration to all. Our daughter Aly volunteered to be a counselor for her required service hours for high school. Following the wonderful experience at Camp Blessing she has volunteered for the past 2 summers and will do so again this summer. She has a great ability and desire to spend time with children with Downs Syndrome. This camp has blessed her with that opportunity as she searches on how she can continue working in this area in her adult life after college. She has made some wonderful friendships with counselors, and more importantly with campers where she continues to spend time with them - taking them to movies, or the mall to shop or just hang out with them. What a life changing experience, thank you Camp Blessing for all you do!

My nephew volunteered as a counselor this past summer and had a great time with all of the kids. This camp is truly a blessing to not only the campers, but also the volunteers who help everything run smoothly.

What an extra-ordinary facility that helps nourish growth and love.

I have a nephew with autism that has attended Camp Blessing and loves it. His brother also goes to camp with him and has met friends that have siblings with disabilities. I think this is so important so that he can share with friends that have the same family dynamic. This experience has been so good for both of them. The counselors are so caring.

I have a grandson Spencer who is nine years old and is autistic. Camp blessing this past summer was a teriffic experience. He enjoyed doing things outdoors like other kids get to experience and what was really cool was his twelve year old brother went and the programs for siblings of special needs kids was great. They both had a great time and it also gave there parents a week to themselves to regenerate and think about there special mission in life raising a special needs child.
