Campers, get ready for this wonderful experience that awaits you! Have you ever been in a situation where your words went “unspoken”? Have you ever had so much to say but just could not get those words out? Have you ever met another person that stutters?  We want to let you know that you are not alone. Our goal for each camper is to have there own experience. We want you to feel free to be yourself, to speak freely even if you stutter, to gain confidence and to learn and use proven strategies to help with your fluency in a non-judgmental environment.
