IDAHO DRUG-FREE YOUTH INC
October 17, 2012
Our oldest daughter was contacted through her middle school about attending Idaho Youth Summit, a summer camp for Idaho Drug Free Youth. As parents, we were very skeptical, and very cautious, as we didn't know anything about the organization. After looking into IDFY, we somewhat nervously allowed her to attend the 4 day camp, wondering if we had made the right choice. Seven years later, we realize that it was one of the best choices that we have ever made for our children. Since then, we have had two additional children who have attended the camp (the older two have both been youth staff) and it continues to be an exceptional experience for them. Each summer when they come home, they return with stronger personal conviction to stay drug free, more personal heroes that they have met at camp, and with stronger self confidence. They realize that they are not alone in fighting the battle over drug/alcohol/substance abuse. They have seen first hand the consequences of addiction as key note speakers present their stories. They participate in funfilled "character building" activities that have helped them to deal with those awkward teenage moments. They have returned to their schools and actively participated in the local IDFY Club, trying to spread its influence to other peers. With all the battles that parents face raising children in this world, it is wonderful to have the the staff and members of IDFY on our side to help keep our kids DRUG FREE! Thank you IDFY, you have our support! If we could give you more than a 5 star rating, we would, you deserve it!
