My son, Daniel, has enjoyed Camp Krem’s rich programs for almost a decade, and has benefited from it in terms of joy, friendship, independence and good memories – as have all of us in Daniel’s family.
This Summer, Daniel has been fortunate to attend Camp Krem’s new location for several sessions. It is my belief that many other people with special needs – both children and adults – have benefited from Camp Krem as “a place for exceptional people to be themselves – since 1957”.
Daniel relishes the opportunity to learn and grow with his peers away from home. He loves sleeping outside in a cot next to the cabins, awakening to the sunrise each morning – appreciating the beauty of nature and welcoming the positive 60’s music that starts the day; he delights singing and preforming theater, creating arts and crafts and swimming in the sun.
Camp Krem is an experience Daniel looks forward to all year long, with ‘bated anticipation. Upon dropping Daniel off this last time, with love in his heart and a big smile on his face – he turned to me and said, “you can go now, Dad”. As parent, words do not adequately describe the happiness and peace of mind, knowing my son is having the time of his life in a safe and nurturing environment.
