I have been involved in Camp Encourage since it's founding year. I cannot speak highly enough of this organization. They provide children with Autism Spectrum Disorders a safe, fun and loving place where they can be themselves. They provide their parents with support, respite, and a place to send their children where they are loved and appreciated for who they are. A place where parents don't have to explain or apologize for their children's uniqueness. The kids have a great time at camp just being themselves. As an educator it has really opened my eyes about the strengths that children have when they are not pigeon-hold into setting that doesn't always meet their needs. It has changed the way I work with all children. This is a non-profit worth getting to know and definitely worth supporting.
