Camp Stand By Me Making a Difference in Families' Lives

What Families Are Saying About Camp Stand By Me


We were thrilled to hear about the impact Camp Stand By Me is having on our campers in a recent survey sent to all families.  The survey results themselves were outstanding.  When parents were asked the following questions, 100% of them checked Yes

Read some of the many comments submitted by families.  This is why we do what we do!


"Our son is 32 and has lived with us all thirty two years. We love our son and we're pretty sure he loves us but... what young adult would want to spend so... much... time... with his parents??? ps: we really appreciate the break too!" - Camper's Family

"This was by far the best experience our daughter has ever had at this camp!  The counselors were awesome...very welcoming and friendly, even with the parents!" - Camper's Family

"All of the caregivers did an excellent job! Our son had a terrific time and rated it his best year." - Camper's Family


"The Staff is FANTASTIC!  They are warm and friendly and caring.  Our daughter loved her camp counselors." - Camper's Family

"Best ever! The photo CD is great and the Take Home Report is a must! For the first time ever, our daughter came home with not one mosquito bite. I don't know how that happened as they usually eat her alive. I have to attribute it to the care--I provided repellent and mosquito coil bracelets and they were actually used. Our duaghter even came home wearing a coil bracelet. Thank you!" - Camper's Family


"Cannot say enough about the friendliness, creativity and compassion of the staff." - Camper's Family

"Every session my daughter attends gets better & better. I didn't think we could have a more positive experience but they stay consistently awesome! Your staff has made me go from a mother that called on a daily basis because I was afraid of how she would adjust to being away from me to feeling confident that she would be safe, happy & grow to continue to do things that are out of her comfort zone. Thank you!" - Camper's Family


"You do such a fantastic job!  So impressed with Josh and staff!" - Camper's Family

"I am very pleased and appreciate the amount of time and concern that the staff put into each camper. It really puts my mind at ease to know that my daughter is going to be taken care of because of the information that they collect. Each camper has different circumstances, and I leave the camp knowing they understand my daughter's condition. The whole process is excellent. I like how I get to meet the cabin leaders and staff. It always feels like a family reunion when my daughter participates." - Camper's Family


"Amazing...we truly love Camp Easter Seals.  The quality of the counselors, nursing staff are just excellent." - Camper's Family
