Taylor Family Foundation provides a service that many forget -- helping sick and disabled children enjoy time away from their illness and daily stress to enjoy a day, night and week at summer camp. My son Robby, who has autism, has been fortunate to "camp" there for the last ten years. It has been one of the most enjoyable experiences of his life. Not only does TFF provide this true camping experience for children with disabilities - they do so for free. That's right, each camper attends at absolutely no cost. The cabins, meals, activities are all provided at no cost due to the generous benefactors of the organization. Whether a child has autism, AIDS, a heart or skin condition, or is bi-polar or physically disabled, Taylor Family Foundation is there - every single summer - to help them experience summer camp. Elaine Taylor, the founder, has poured her heart and soul into this camp -- and it is is literally beautiful. Cabins, swimming pools, pastures, ropes courses, arts and crafts facilities, and a full service infirmary ensure all have a good time. This is truly a non profit organization that is the 'best of the best!'
The Taylor Family foundation provides an amazing setting for Camp Opehay that is simply not available anywhere else. This oppty changed things dramatically for my son. He felt normal with common peers and treasured by incredible staff. With critical medication administration, this camp offers respite to parents and hope to children. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
My 7 year old son went to Camp Wonder last summer for the first time and he loved it! He has a rare genetic skin condition called Epidermolysis Bullosa. It is the first time in his life that his bandages were taken care of by anyone but myself and his father and it was a much needed break. He was able to just be a kid and his "special skin" was not an issue. He made a lot of friends and you could feel the love that the staff has for our children. We shared stories and tips with the other parents and had a great time too! My husband and myself were blown away by the generosity that was extended to us and our 3 year old son who also has EB. This was the first vacation we were ever on as a family due to the major medical expenses we have from the 2 kids special EB bandages. God Bless everyone affiliated with TFF and believe me, this is an organization that thinks of the kids first!
