CampOut Stories & Experiences
So Much Hope and Joy
The CampOut with Emily with the superheroes is huge for my daughter. Thank you for letting her participate. Also we had just so much fun when you and Hope came to our house. Rebecca is still talking about it. We created a story on her iPad so she could share her experience with her friends and go back and visit with the experience when she needs to. Know that what you are doing provides so much hope and joy to those who are in receipt of the experience.

Even More Fun Than She Anticipated
Maddie has been having a tough time recently, so I could never thank you enough or tell you how much it truly, truly meant to us to have this to look forward to & how much fun Maddie had yesterday!! You guys rock!! Maddie said it was even more fun than she anticipated, if that's even possible!
For 13 years we have been making the 8-10 hour round trip back & forth to New England for medical care & support. This is the first time that some of that support came to us; we would have never dreamed that would happen. We are so grateful & humbled that you both traveled the distance to come & visit our Maddie.

It's rare that I get the opportunity to spend time with adults in similar situations as mine. Being the parent of a kid with a chronic illness can feel very isolating...especially when you are a single parent. You don't always know if you are doing the right thing...or if you're the only one who feels this way. I went to the event thinking it was just for Hunter – but it was helpful for me as well...very validating.

The Best Time I Ever Had
Thank you so much for spending time with me. I really felt like I was back at Camp enjoying all of the fun things I would normally do at Camp. Having the three of you come down to spend time with me was the best time I had ever had in my life. I was so happy that I got this great gift on the day before my birthday.
