Camp Wego is so great with each individual. All the counselors make sure each and everyone has a great time. They listen to the likes and dislikes of the individual . I have 2 disabled individuals and each time they go on a trip with Camp Wego they never stop talking about how much fun they had and where they ate. Always asking when they going again.
I found that Camp Wego took time with my daughter to help her develop her social skills. I sent my daughter, with autisum on a few trips with them. She is usually very quite but since she's been with Camp Wego she has really opened up is talking more. She has made friends and she just loves all the counselor's.
My son has traveled with Camp Wego for over 4 years. He loves it and he returns s ok happy and excited for a new trip. Thanks to their scholarships my son is able to enjoy travel and become more independent.
