Dear Gordie & Donna, This was Samantha's first experience away from home and I'm sure, as a parent, you can imagine my emotions. I was nervous, apprehensive, happy, sad, etc... I was a mess for quite some time. After spending Saturday at the camp, I am still experiencing emotions but they are all happy tears. I've never seen Samantha so happy. She is glowing. She is talkative and FULL of life! I can't begin to tell you just how amazed I am.
Dear Gordie, Henry has had another wonderful summer! We want to sincerely express our gratitude to Ryan and the other counselors; Henry has had some outstanding support and guidance for three years in a row now. And thank you for making special accommodations this summer for Henry's academics. We were so impressed with his reading and math work! Sending Henry to Camp Northwood is one of the best decisions we have made. Thank you all.
Dear Donna, I can't begin to tell you how grateful we are that Sarah had the opportunity to come to the Northwood Center this summer. From my first conversation with Gordon, I could tell Northwood was a special place.
