Review for Camptown, Inc., Indianapolis, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Camptown has provided outstanding outdoor educational experiences for my special needs high school students over the past seven years. Each one has been a wonderful opportunity for my students. These students mention their Camptown experiences as some of their favorite high school memories.

Review for Camptown, Inc., Indianapolis, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Camptown has provided classroom and outdoor experiences for my special needs students for the past seven years. It is impossible to comment here on all of the benefits my students have had from their programs. A short example is a high school student who had never spent the night away from home before, and had never slept in a tent. His confidence soared the next morning;he was so proud of himself. Camptown teaches leadership, environmental stewardship, builds an increased confidence in individuals, and provides an opportunity for underprivileged youth to learn and enjoy each other in a new setting.

How did you find this group?

I became aware of Camptown through their president who lives in my town.

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

It has changed my outlook and expectations of my students' behaviors. They are most capable of any challenge placed in front of them. They only need someone to believe they can do it.

Role:  Client Served & I was the teacher in charge of the students.
