• Quote of the Day
    "The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."

Site helps parents find perfect summer camp, including children with special needs.

http://www.mysummercamps.com/

A virtual yellow pages, the site doesn't rate the camps (although those accredited by the American or Canadian Camp Associations declare that), but instead provides visitors with enough information about them to begin to make an informed choice for their child.

Camps are broken down according to content, location and audience. There are camps aimed at kids with special needs (autism, Tourette syndrome, learning disabilities), special interests (sports, arts, academics) and more traditional options as well.
