Carolyn with her daughter Erin - Chelmsford, MA

carolyn"Erin was a 16 year old "first-timer" to Marcus lewis Day Camp this past summer. Unfortunately, she hurt her knee the last day of school so she was physically limited and we didn't know if she would be able to go to camp. We were SO impressed with the compassion and willingness of MLDC to accomodate to her limitations and their encouragement for her to attend! She had a wonderful week at camp despite not being able to participate in the more "physical" activities. The staff was SO unbelievably attentive to her throughout the day and they really cared that she had a great camp experience. She was amazed at the attention she got!

As a parent, I felt very comfortable in sending her each day, knowing that the staff was concerned about her well-being, physically, socially, and emotionally! Erin is hoping to have an opportunity to maybe return to camp as a CIT next year!
