I am the mother of a 13 year old boy that has A.D.H.D/Anxiety.
Camp Kirk was his first "overnight camp".
My son spend 2 weeks at Camp Kirk. He had a wonderful time.
This camp has staff members that are kind, compassionate and fun-loving. He came back with such wonderful stories about "Camp Life".
He is very active and they had him doing all kinds of fun things.
He went away with a low self-esteem and came back with a courage I have never seen before.
I am so very proud of the success he has achieved.
I would highly recommend Camp Kirk to any child/family that have a challenges. The support and kindness we got as a family was unbelievable.
When you meet Erica and the gang... you know they do it for the love of kids and it shows... and you will fall in love with Henry (the dog).
Thank you...you guys will never be forgotten.
