This program is specially designed for  children with special needs. “The Y has helped Timothy so much! Before he came to camp, he was anti-social and didn’t have a lot of friends. Now, he’s a social butterfly whose confidence has soared,” said LaTonya, Timothy’s mom.

“If you have it to be a blessing unto others please give to the Y,” says LaTonya. “Camp has been a life-changing experience for my child and I know he will never be the same because of it.  Without someone giving to the Y, Timothy would have never have blossomed the way he has.”
