Description

No matter how many years I go to camp, or who my campers are, one thing remains constant. I always leave feeling like something special was given to me, not the other way around. I take seriously the awesome responsibility I see behind the love and trust visible in the eyes of the campers. I can only hope they get out of camp at least a small percentage of what I do. I am not the same person who first stepped into that cub scout room almost 20 years ago. Because of the people, campers and counselors, on the pages of this story I am a better person. I have been taught the real meaning of courage, perseverance and unconditional love. I have been shown a standard I can only hope to one day live up to and I am deeply indebted to each of them for that.

This book traces 20 years of experiences at a camp for children with special needs. The camp accepts children with all levels of mental, physical and emotional handicapps.

    This book was outstanding! I have a son who is 10 with Down syndrome. I truly appreciated the great care from all the counselors to the children. It made my heart feel good that their are people out there that allow our special people touch and change their lives. God is real! I am going to share this book to my entire network of special parents and friends. Loving the Dandelions is my next read. This gives me great hope for my child and finding a camp for him that someone will love him as much as I do. Who knows I may start my own. Thank you, Stacey L. Coleman

    Proud of my uncle for his great work on this book and work at the camp. I was fortunate enough to be able to go to the camp with him and it was a life changing experience
