My son goes to River Discovery every year and he loves it. I cannot explain what River Discovery does for him. He gets a week long trip to just be him. No Dr's no mom's to ask how he is feeling...What a great program..

My son Michael went on the float trip last year and he came home with the biggest smile and a great attitude. He cannot wait to go again this year. He talks about his experience almost everyday.

I thank River Discovery for what they have done for Michael and all the kids.
