TESTIMONIALS

From the mother of a four-year-old camp participant...

 

"Our son had a fantastic time at the BAC summer camp again this year. It’s the second year he’s attended, and he made even more progress than we could have hoped. The interdisciplinary team of therapists who worked with him were absolutely wonderful. He always had great things to say about the creative activities they integrated into the day. Even though he had lots of therapy throughout each day, he always came home talking about how much fun he had. We’ll definitely be sending him back to camp next summer!"

From a mother of a four-year-old camp participant...

"Our daughter loves the intensive camps so much!  We love that she gets two hours of one-on-one therapy, and she loves all of the fun camp activities (especially arts and crafts) and meeting new friends.  And as a mom of a child with unique needs, it’s so wonderful to let her have a camp experience in a safe environment, while she’s also working hard.  She can’t wait until the next camp!" 

From the mother of a seven-year-old camp participant...

"My son attended the 3 week 2019 summer session of the BAC Intensive Camp; he thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this camp. This opportunity had a tremendously positive impact on him. Being with other kids, adults, build endurance/ strength, having it every day enabled him to make significant physical gains. He enjoyed socializing with his peers and interacting with their amazing, caring staff so much so that he did not even notice how much work he was putting into his therapy sessions.  What I imagined to be a realistic goal for the end of the 3 weeks was accomplished in 3 days. I think BAC is a wonderful model... that everyone communicates with everyone and it's a whole team approach this really benefits each child. The amount of attention to detail for each child was obvious. The kids looked like they had a great time!"
