My sons have attended Camp Encourage as Peer Models for the past 2 years (and will attend again this year at THEIR request). I am simply blown away by the quality people who volunteer their time to run camp, the level of planning and attention to detail put in to EACH camper's stay, and the stories I hear from families with campers on the spectrum. I selected "client served" because even though my sons are there to be models, they come away fulfilled as well. It is a wonderful experience for our family.

As a parent of a child with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, camp allows my child to celebrate who she was designed to be without being concerned with fitting in as who she's not. During camp, she receives support in areas that are challenging for her by the area's leading experts that choose to volunteer their time and talents. The positive impact of camp is life changing! The social skills and confidence built through her camp activities have continued to assist her at school and in the community with peers. Campers, staff, volunteers and peers in our Camp Encourage family "do life" together, too. Whether helping navigate challenges of daily life or sharing tears of joy for accomplishments that might have not been, the Camp Encourage experience reaches beyond those 4 days/3nights.

My son has attended Camp Encourage three times in the past four years, and it is the highlight of his summer. The staff is excellent, the program increases his confidence and social abilities, he has made lasting friendships there, and I recommend it strongly.
