Review for Kamp Kace Inc, Fargo, ND, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

They are good unless you happen to have a child with special challenges, then they aren't interested in having your cancer kid participate. My son attended two year, 2011 and 2012, took 2013 off to attend another camp. They sent him the application for 2013 but I contacted the director of the camp and explained that we were taking 2013 off to attend a camp in Montana. She said nothing at that time about any issues that had arisen. I applied for camp 2014 in Feb and emailed making sure they got the application and all. They again said nothing about issues. I got an email last night from Kim Belgarde, director, saying that due to serious behavior problems with my son he was being banned from camp for good and she hoped we find another camp for him to attend. I emailed her asking for specifics about the behavior and have heard nothing so far.

We were never alerted to any issues, either year, about any problems, not by email, phone call nor in person when I personally picked him up. I am beside myself as I just don't understand how they can, after two years, ban a child from attending a camp that he looks forward to and with other kids that have had cancer like him. I feel they are discriminatory against some kids when it comes to their decisions and they are very hurtful to children who have been hurt enough in their illness journeys.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Encourage the director to train volunteers and staff about some of the issues that might come along with a child that is going through or has gone thru the cancer treatments and some things that might come up.
