Volunteer Testimonials

What do our volunteers say about working with us?

“One young man was 6 years old when he came to Camp Treasure Chest. He was nonverbal.  He would knock things over, jump up and down, and make noises. Those noises are now tangible words. Over the years we have learned to communicate with him and understand him. He is now entering high school. He is now able to participate with others. This camper continues to attend Camp Treasure Chest every year, and every year I can see growth in him. The camp has provided the opportunity for him to meet others, socialize, learn skills that he was lacking, and receive services that would not have been available to him during the summer (speech, music, and art therapies).”

Martha Griffin

Camp Counselor

“I really see a difference in the campers from one year to the next. Speech therapy is great for our campers. When one young girl first attended camp, I could not understand her very well because her words were not clear, but speech therapy has made a big improvement with her and other campers. I just love seeing their faces and expressions when we go on outings like the Mighty 8th Museum. Camp Treasure Chest has been a great and wonderful experience for me and the campers who attend each summer.”
