We started this because we had a need that couldn't be met anywhere else. We have four children on the autism spectrum, ages 4, 6, 8, and 14, who receive various services, but the one we needed the most didn't exist: socializing. We went to Camp Hope hosted by Remi Vista, and we will be forever grateful to them. We learned that our kids did very well with other children who had some of the same issues. We also found parents who don't judge the way our children act. In fact, we laugh at each other's stories and antics of our children. Prior to that we felt all alone. Our goal is to establish a small community of families who share challenges so they never feel alone. We hope you'll join us.

Your child isn't broken and doesn't need to be fixed.
Embrace, love, and enjoy the uniqueness of your child.
