Camp Amp

Fun at Camp Amp

Camp Amp was great!  My son loved it.  Camp Amp is run by our local Easter Seals as part of their therapeutic recreation services.

This year the camp theme was “Wild West.” I loved that the camp leaders took pictures everyday and posted them on a message board that we parents could view each evening.  My favorite activity that they did was roping a cow– a leader dressed in a cow uniform and the kids tried to rope him.  Hilarious!

There were campfires, s’mores, afternoons in the pool, rest time, canoeing, and even a hoe down.

When I arrived at the camp to pick up my boy, he gave me a big hug.  And then proceeded to tell me all about camp… the “secret” campfire, the giant slip and slide (which was pretty cool looking), and the s’mores.

It was a great experience for him.  We saw, in 5 days’ time, an increase in his self confidence.  Without electronics, his conversation skills improved.

I am grateful for people who will work with my kid.  I am happy that he is growing up so nicely.  I am hopeful!
