Autism Summer Camp Video

Reason #333 that Dragonfly Forest is the best: They let me design a free overnight autism camp program for them outside of Philadelphia! This video is me (slightly awkwardly) talking about the program. You can read more about Dragonfly Forest, and why I designed it the way I did here.

    You say that just because you are not from Philadelphia you are surprised, but when we started Dragonfly Forest our goal was to find the best people (in and out of the Philadelphia area) and make a #1 camp for some really special kids. So don’t be so surprised that we found you hundred of miles away and saw what you were capable of and had you do it.

    This past summer we had counselors from 15 different states, a camp director from the West Coast, you from NC, a medical director from Las Vegas … its a new model of finding the best and bringing them together to make the best for our kids … afterall, who deserves it more then them!

    Very cool- and not awkward at all-nice work. It is tough to be eloquent and professional while wearing tie dye, but you pulled it off.

    Sylvia – this is excellent. I’m so glad more kids can experience camp.
