Well it’s officially summer and for our house that means a few weeks of summer camp is in order! Last year MJ attended a “regular” summer camp and though it started off well, we realized it wasn’t a good fit for MJ. In fact my daughter was so relieved when she found out he wouldn’t be at the same camp. She said, “Some of the kids were mean to MJ mommy. I don’t want them to keep being mean to him.” This year MJ is attending the YMCA special needs summer camp. He’ll be participating in some academic work as well as social skills play, swimming, and field trips. This is the most relaxed I have ever been with a summer camp program. There is a low student to teacher ratio and everyone seems to be knowledgable about their job. I’m praying that each day is a good one and that we can continue to use this camp in the years to come.
