Testimonials

Here are a few things parents have had to say about the experiences their children have had at Camp Roanoke.

My child participated in the day program this year, several weeks before entering public schools for the first time. The structured environment and positive interactions with new friends and instructors was just what he needed to adjust to a huge life change. He loved every minute of it, and has asked repeatedly to come back next year.

Both of my children had a great experience at Camp Roanoke, particularly my 9 year old. his week was an invaluable experience for him in personal responsibility and independence. He raved about camp and his counselors when he returned home. I also appreciate the "no electronics" policy. Kids need a chance to unplug now more than ever.

As our students began to meet the challenges set by Camp Roanoke guides, we saw a dramatic shift in their behavior. The guides were excellent in facilitating growth and reflection, and by the end we were all impressed by how our students progressed. All of us have reflected on the experience with our students and have received only positive feedback. By working together and meeting challenges as they arose, we created common purpose. Our trip to Camp Roanoke was extremely successful.
