I grew up going to the tatiyee camp every year, it brings me joy when I see all of my deaf/hoh friends for an entire week, incorporating lots of activities, crafts and so much more that is deaf friendly. It’s truly an amazing camp. I am still friends with all of them!
Max loves Camp Tatiyee! Pam Swanson and the whole organization embody the ideals of selfless loving service. Special needs people & their families love & need Camp Tatiyee.
My son, Max, loves Camp Tatiyee! Last year they even noticed he was not his cheery self & we found his medication was way too much. Thanks Staff!
I work at Camp Tatiyee and this camp is magic. For the week that campers attend they are so well loved and taken care of. The staff is extensively trained and working here has been the best experience in my life.
Our son has attended Camp Tatiyee for about 6 years now. He loves it! And he looks foward to it every summer. It is an amazing program! It has given our son opportunities and experiences other wise he could never have. We are truly thankful!
Our son is 20 yrs old. He has attended Camp Tatiyee for about 6 years now. He looks foward every year to go back again. What an amaizing opportunity is this for our son and other kids like him. It's a great program! They are so well organized, full of activities for the kids, amazing staff and volunteers. We are forever thankful to everybody who makes Camp Tatiyee posible!
Our 21 yr old daughter was bornmissing her left arm just below the elbow and has cerebral palsy, leaving her in a wheelchair and is total care. She had stranger anxiety for the first decade of her life due to doctors and therapists, who were doing their best to help her grow and learn in the healthiest way possible. Camp Tatiyee is an enormous help and strength to her and she is able to mix and mingle and has great memories of Camp. She will return next year for the 7th time and she’s excited every year to go. Great job Camp Tatiyee and super kudos to the loving, caring, fun staff.
My Special Needs child looks forward to Camp Tatiyee, beginning the day she comes home from the camp she just attended. This place is WONDERFUL ! Staff treats campers like the special people they are. The wide variety of activities is amazing. Cook out-Pool-skits-dance-Crafts-Archery-and hikes keep the days hopping, and that's just the few I know about. Please contribute to this camp. It's the only camp I know of in Arizona and it's FREE, so all Special Needs children and adults can go. I love that place and so does Tomacina.
AMAZING nonprofit doing Mitch needed work for the special needs community of Arizona! Could not recommend them more highly.
There is nowhere on earth that your special meeds child will get so much care, love, and attention. The services this place offers are beyond comparison.
Camp Tatiyee is the best camp in the whole wide world. The staff there is so professional and fabulous with all the kids. This is a wonderful special needs camp, where the kids get to enjoy themselves with other special needs campers and get to do so many fun activities, like archery, swimming, riding go-carts, etc. Pam , the camp director, is so exceptional at her job, taking care of all the kids and running the camp with a great staff. My son looks forward every year to coming to this camp. Great Camp! 5 plus ********
I have visited this camp three times now, and have been consistently impressed with the Director and staff who are so caring and professional too. The unique opportunities they provide for each camper enhance their quality of life immensely.
My boys attended for the first time this past summer. It was a dream come true, to find an inclusive place where they could both attend camp together and each have their unique needs met. Camp Tatiyee is truly one of a kind. We are all so grateful.
Our son Drew's first year. He had such a good time and looking forward to attending again next yearv
My name is Kimberly I have gone to camp for two years and I hope that i will go next year. I have Cerebral palsy and i also know Sign Language. I found out about camp from Berlin. My first time at camp i was scared because I had never been to a camp in my entire life. The counselor are great.
AZ lion's camp has givin me independence.
Camp tatiyee is the best camp ever. The staff is fabulous and cares so much about the kids. Even though the kids have a disability you would never know it as this camp. All the kids get to enjoy so many fun activities and games. Best camp ever.
Pam, the director is so caring and wonderful.
My daughter had a fantastic first summer camp experience this past summer at Arizona Lions Camp Tatiyee! We had never allowed her to go before but reconsidered after hearing great things about it from a former camper who attended for years in the past. She would love to go again next summer and have another wonderful time with fellow campers, awesome camp staff, and fun activities.
I can't thank you enough for camp soar. After my children lost their dad in August, it was a blessing for them to be invited out to this camp for grieving children. They had a good day and we appreciate it. Thank you to all the sponsors who made this possible as well as all those who volunteered their time and kindness. God bless you. Karen Howell
