-Maria, a parent
Five years ago I enrolled my son in the Community Living Summer Camp. From the beginning it was like coming home. To a place of acceptance, kindness, compassion and understanding. But most all FUN. Being able to go to camp and have it centered around their needs and abilities, as opposed to trying to attend a regular summer camp program and be integrated and constantly trying to adapt the program to my son’s needs. As a parent, I can relax and know that he is happy, well taken care of and I can have a break also.

I can’t wait to come to camp and I want to come back next year.
