Parent Comments
  • I wanted to thank you and the staff for
    supporting Matt so much at camp. Ms. Virginia was
    very supportive with touching base with him today
    to help him through the rough spots. He also
    feels very supported by Ms. D. Ken and I
    appreciate everyones efforts in helping him
    adjust to a new experience and he is looking
    forward to coming back.
  • After first week of camp Chris got on and off
    the bus very happily all last week and was full
    of smiles when I told him the bus was here today.
    His behavior was good after camp last week and he
    slept well at night. He truly needs routine! I
    know all the time and energy that is going into
    the planning and implementation of this camp and
    I just want all of you to know how much I
    appreciate your hard work and dedication! This
    camp was a huge part of our original vision for
    ARCH and, I must say, I am very proud of us! If
    this is an indication of things to come, we all
    have a lot to be proud of. Karen Johns
  • I had the pleasure of interacting with the staff
    at the ARCH on mornings when I drove Joey to
    camp. I noticed right away the staff and overall
    environment was very upbeat and positive. The
    team appeared to be very focused on providing a
    fun and therapeutic camp experience for my son. I
    was able to see firsthand why Joey eagerly left
    the house to got camp each day with a big smile
    on his face! Patty Cioce
  • Our daughter really enjoys summer camp at ARCH.
    She never looked forward to anything like this
    before. She enjoys the activities, being a helper
    to some of the younger kids and thinks the
    counselors are just great. She has even asked
    about going again next year! It has been a
    pleasant surprise for us because we thought she
    would NEVER take to any camp like she has this
