"Going Off to Camp," Autism Asperger's Digest

Parent Testimonials

I can't tell you how happy I am to have Peri up at Camp Lakey Gap. The comfort it gives Lance and me and the fun I know Peri will have is priceless! As always, you and the staff gave us the feeling of being "home" again. We can't ask for anything more.     Ruth T

Thank you for your leadership and vision for our children. It was well noticed and received. I mean, I felt as if you really wanted me to have some time for me, and you took care of everything for Chelley. I have never had that happen to me before, and I am going to do my best to start saving right now for next year. Christmount and their camp staff have truly shown me the love of Christ, which to me is so rarely seen especially when it comes to Chelley. Society pretty much ignores that Chelley exists, and she is not shown love by most people. What a nice change to experience God's love in Black Mountain. You will never really know how much I appreciate and love all of you.    Marie P

Camp Lakey Gap has become a special place to my daughter and a safe place she especially looks forward to attending when possible. The weeks leading up to her arrival at camp are filled with joyful anticipation of the fun and love she knows she will experience there with the staff, counselors, and fellow campers. As her parent, not only do I enjoy experiencing her excitement, I rest assured knowing the professional and nurturing hands I will be leaving her in.

Nolan came home with increased confidence and independence. He talked for two hours straight telling us all the fun things he got to do at camp.

Matthew hasn't stopped talking about camp. He had a fabulous time!!! Thank you so much!    Julie L

To have a week of respite was so rejuvenating. It allowed me to spend quality time with my teenage daughters. I am grateful for all you have done to make this camp so wonderful!

With Logan being on a Gluten/Casein free diet, I was so impressed with how smooth the "meal" process was. Your staff is outstanding and they cover all elements of diet!     Juliette H

Tyler had a wonderful time. He made many great comments about all the fun activities and friends he made. He felt very comfortable and didn't want to come home.     Dawn B

We loved the talent show, it was precious, and the pick-up process was very organized. We really loved the written reports from the counselor, this helped so much with discussing things with him.     Sara R

This was a huge step, not only for our son but for our family. Camp Lakey Gap provided a safe, nurturing, loving environment for our child. We were very happy and satisfied with our son's experience.     Robin K

Staff Testimonials

Thank you so much for inviting me to work at camp again, it was a fantastic experience (as always!) There's truly something magical about that place, and it was so special to see it in action yet again this summer.     Matt M

I love my job! It is challenging, fulfilling, and I truly feel like I'm a part of a very close team. I have never felt this supported and fulfilled at any of my previous jobs, and I love camp for that!!     Laney O

I love this job! It has totally confirmed what I want to do with my life. Thank you so much for hiring me and giving me the chance to work here.     Rachel

I thought this job was a great opportunity to begin with when I applied but I had no idea it would be so rewarding in more ways than one. I have gained a new respect for individuals with disabilities and the people who care for them 24/7. I could not have asked for a better way to spend 6 weeks of my summer than here at Camp Lakey Gap, I would love to keep working with people who have ASD and camp is definitely calling my name next summer!     Morgan P
