My Daughter Nykiah was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at birth and unable to walk. We heard about Lindsey's Place through one of the Nurses that help care for "Lindsey" Hart (the young Lady for whom this awesome place bears the name). We put in the application to attend but, could not afford the entire cost. Being that Lindsey's Place promises not to turn down a Camper, my daughter was able to attend! This was her first time in 10yrs ever being away from us for an extended period and especially overnight. We were nervous but quickly became "at ease" when we got our first phone call from Nykiah expressing how much fun she was having!!! It was such a joy to hear her laugh and talk about all the people (Friends) she was meeting and all the Games she was playing! She did things she'd never done before! She felt FREE and was elated to have a place where everyone is jus like her! No one to judge or stare, just plain happiness and love! I would and do recommend Lindsey's Place to everyone I know who has a child with a disability. Nykah has attended the Camp 3 times since then and each time it gets better and better!! She looks forward to "her time away" from her Twin Sister

I have been involved with two events with Lindsey's Place in the past year. You can tell from all of the hard work and devotion of the board members and volunteers that this is an amazing group of people. I will not hesitate to volunteer my time to this organization again. I know that the time and energy we spend that every bit of it goes to help a child's life.

I was able to visit the spring camp at Lindsey's Place this past September and it was very heart warming! The children are all so happy, the volunteers and counselors are happy and the nurses are happy! The camp director and counselors have so many fun activities planned for the children! It put a permanent smile on my face to see the smile on the faces of all of the children, volunteers and counselors. My husband and I were very blessed to have a daughter that does not have any physical or mental disabilities and I took her with me to the camp. I knew that she would not say mean things or look down on the kids as her great aunt has disabilities, but I was not sure what to expect. Within an hour, she made best friends with a camper that is in a wheel chair. They sang songs together, painted together, laughed and played together! My daughter held onto her new friends wheel chair as they were "walking!" I immediately had chills all over my body as I watched my child look past the disabilities and loved this child for her heart and personality. Lindsey's Place is a BEAUTIFUL place! It is very involved, loving and fun!
I support Lindsey's Place 100% and hope their dreams come true of having a permanent, year-round residential camp in Savannah, Georgia! It's desperately needed!

If only I had a lot of money and could give it all to Lindsey's Place to help make their dream come true, so they wouldn't be limited to a certain amount of camps a year and at a location that was not theirs.

Lindsey's Place is like nothing else in this area. It provides a camping experience for children and young adults. The things I like the most are that the people involved really care about this organization and the campers. Also, the organization isn't limited to just one type of disability. It is open to people with all different types of disabilities.

It’s so great to finally have a place in the southeast area that affords children and young adults with disabilities a place where they can have fun and enjoy a camping experience like so many other non-disabled individuals. Lindsey’s Place allows young people with all types of disabilities, to engage in camp-like activities that they would normally miss out on. They do so many fun things during camp– they sing, dance, play games, draw, paint, and make new friends. Life can be so challenging and hard for these children a daily basis. If you’re ever fortunate enough to see the faces of these special young people light up while at camp, it’s something that you will never forget. Lindsey’s Place is a wonderful organization. It’s definitely a special place for very special people.

This retreat was the most amazing weekend I have had ever. I am totally visually impaired and Lindsey's Place gave me a great place to just be a young person without feeling like I have a disability. I met some inspiring fellow campers and some very caring staff. I am looking forward to returning for another weekend.

Lindsey's Place was founded by wonderful people who put smiles on the faces of children and adults with special needs. It is an inspiration to watch the volunteers interact with the campers and provide them with an unforgettable experience.

My 20 year old grandchild has attended Lindsey's Place weekend retreat twice now and has moved to a new level of being without Mom and Dad being there through the night. The staff is well trained and the venues have been great, especially the one just held in Savannah. I was able to enjoy my weekend and sleep without any concerns for her well being.

My only thought would be that there should be older typically developing teens attending camp also as a way to find and teach future caregivers and healthcare professionals.

I know the person who inspired this camp and how much she benefitted from attending one "up north" before. I hope everyone will support it with their gifts and time as something that is unique and much needed in our area run by top notch people solely dedicated to improving the quality of life of adults with disabilities.
