“One of the great things about Camp Horizons is that it provides a “no-risk” sampler of activities for our child to try. This has prompted him to experiment with Sports and Arts - two areas that aren't usually his first choices - and this has been a real boost. Thank you! It's great that he's been able to have these new experiences.”
