Jonathan is 13 years old, he has Autism Spectrum Disorder. His condition affects his social relationships, academic and self-care skills. He is a kind boy with a bright mind. Having positive and exciting camp experiences is so helpful for Jonathan. It helps him feel less “different” and more like everyone else. He is building memories that will last his whole life. – Tina, Jonathan’s mom.
