My son went to Madden Open Hearts Camp for the first time when he was 7 years old. I was hesitant to send him at such a young age, but he assured me he wanted to go. When we drove up for the first time, we could just feel the excitement and the caring pouring out from everyone. It was the longest two weeks of my life, wondering if Nicholas was adjusting and having a good time. When we picked our son up, he was glowing, and wanted to stay at camp. The Madden Open Heart Camp is one of best things in his life. He lives a “normal” life, but at camp, all the campers have the same trials and tribulations he does. This makes him feel safe, secure, and happy. The staff is wonderful. Nicholas has had two different counselors since he started, and he loves both of them. The entire staff, from Director to Kitchen staff, is incredible. As you can tell I am a true fan of the Madden Open Heart Campâ€¦ the camp works miracles!
