Working with this selected population is some what of a pleasure to me, to see these individuals grow day in day out is heart warming. I started working in this area May 2014 in Michigan USA, and that is the moment I understood where my pathway laid. I worked in Michigan for two summers, each summer session lasting up to three months. So let me tell you a little about my previous employment. At a campers range in age from 5 to 70+ with such disabilities as: cerebral palsy; traumatic brain injury; congenital anomalies; autism; multiple sclerosis; and cognitive impairments. Living arrangements for campers were nine campers to four staff members in cabin working 24/6 - with that one day off a week. Campers return year after year to suspend personal obstacles long enough to enjoy those activities we all remember as part of a treasured camping experience – swimming, music, sports, challenge course, dances, and most of all, the opportunity to make friendships and build relationships that affirm and encourage greater self-discovery. Overall that's a little about me, I find it hard to express how much I care and love for this population but, this is my dream.
