"Kenith has been greatly impacted by the YMCA's Camp Little Eagle. From the invested staff who go above and beyond to show acceptance and hospitality to him, to the design of programs that allow for both a needed structure and a few doses of spontaneity Kenith jumps out of bed ready for the Y! He has undoubtedly been face-to-face with people who love Jesus and allow that unconditional love to carry into their daily interactions with him. He enjoys swimming, free time and the fact that he gets to pack salami every day for lunch, haha. The Y has allowed our family to have a healthy space during the day and at home." Kenith's Caregiver, Kearstin
From the YMCA's Camp Director, Rachel Hardy, "Kenith has shown tremendous growth in his ability to handle situations that do not always match what he wants to do at the time. It has been so rewarding to see how well he has been able to transition from activities throughout the majority of the day! He brings a smile to all of the counselors' faces because of his sweet and caring personality. He is a very special kid and we love having him at camp every day! We are all truly blessed to have Kenith at camp."

I feel a deep sense of love and caring every time I walk into the Y.
