Eva, Katy, and Kim Fenasci
My name is Eva, and I went to camp every summer at Challenges for 4 years (the maximum you could go!). Challenges is a special place to me because I felt comfortable being myself there with all the great staff and campers. I remember walking into camp in the morning at 8 to lots of smiling faces, greeting everyone, and knowing this was going to be a great day, every day! I can’t even pick out a favorite day or activity, because it didn’t really matter what we were doing, I just loved hanging out with the people and learning about others and myself. Challenges teaches many things about coping with challenges in life, but the biggest for me was how to come out of my shell. The support and encouragement I was surrounded by gave me the confidence to be me! Obviously, the staff is absolutely the BEST, but a lot of the kids I went to camp with turned out to be some pretty great friends! I still love seeing friends that I made there out and about because I get to say hi, and it reminds me of all the fun times I had at Challenges. Now that I am too old to go to camp, I miss those three weeks I used to look forward to every summer, but I am thankful for the memories and experience! <3
Challenges is one of the best camps I've ever been to! The counselors were always very supportive and taught me a lot about ways to cope with ADHD. Additionally, the activities were always enjoyable. Not only was the camp really fun, but it helped me realize that I wasn't the only kid with ADHD. Without Challenges, I don't think I would be as confident about my ADHD as I am today - Katy Fenasci
Challenges has been an integral part of childhood for my two daughters, as they attended every summer between 3rd and 7th grade. They truly loved this program, with its amazing staff, and eagerly looked forward to returning each year. They are both confident and resourceful teenagers now that are very well equipped to cope with the challenges in their lives. I am certain that the love, support and guidance that they received at this incredible place has helped them to develop into the beautiful people that they are today. We will always remember and be grateful to Challenges! - Kim Fenasci
