Review for Experience Camps, Westport, CT, USA
My daughter was 13 when her father died from pancreatic cancer. It was difficult dealing with her depression and mine at the same time. She went to Experience Camp exactly 6 months after her father passed away. I was not certain at the time that I was doing the right thing. When I picked her up a week later, it was like she was a different person. I saw her laugh and smile more in that one week than I did in the past 6 months. She made lifelong friends and could not wait to tell me all about them. The counselors were amazing! It was my daughter's first time at overnight camp and I was really worried about leaving her with strangers. I spoke to so many of her counselors that knew exactly what she was going through and exactly what was needed. One of the first things she said to me when I picked her up was "I am going back next year". I was a totally positive experience for her.
