TSL Summer Camp 2017/18/19 Testimonies
"Selena had a very memorable time with you and your awesome staff. She was filled with excitement each day she attended. Of course, we love seeing our children happy and fulfilled. We look forward to staying in touch; cannot wait to see what the future holds! In the meantime, stay happy and healthy. I look forward to seeing all of you again!" -Debra
"Thank you so much for the wonderful day camp experience that you provided for Sam and the other young people this week. The time, effort, and most of all love were so evident in the well planned, appropriate environment. All this bodes well for the future of The Sheperd's Lodge. Sam says his favorite activity was arts and crafts. We look forward to hearing from you about future plans and helping you build this program. Also, a special thanks to all the volunteers who worked with you. We didn't have time to learn all the names but it was a pleasure to see their smiling faces each morning. Have a wonderful rest of the summer" -Evan and John Duncan
"We appreciate you and the rest of your crew for the camp last week. Josh had a great time! Thank you for the sacrifice of time and the scholarship you gave to him." -Eldra Bunkley
"I had a great time at camp this week and I'm missing everybody already! I can't wait to see all my new friends again soon." -Tyrell
Hi, Ann Marie, I hope you are getting some rest this week. The effort that you put out last week for camp must have been energy draining. I especially appreciate your communication with me to encourage Sam to be more social and involved. I asked him what he enjoyed the most and he said "the animals" and gave a step by step account of how to wash a horse. Driving out into the country each beautiful morning was refreshing to me as well. John and I are deeply grateful for the gift of your time and spirit to care for young people with special abilities.
Take care, Evann Duncan 8/1/18
Thank you for always including me and allowing me to be a big brother to the other participants - TR
