Easter Seals Camp Fairlee, Kent County

Summer 2013...Camp Fairlee or more officially Easter Seal's Fairlee Manor Recreation and Education Center is a beautiful, residential/recreational and respite camp on 250 sprawling acres on Fairlee Creek.  Over 400 campers with disabilities, ages 7 to 82, enjoyed sessions offered June thru August - and your support made it all possible!
Once again, Easter Seals offered two week long sessions with one-to-one camper/counselor ratios accommodating the intense needs of children with autism.  These weeks are vital to the families of the campers because very few recreational options exist for people with disabilities.

On United Way support:

"I get the peace of mind that comes with knowing they are receiving round the clock supervision and care.  The staff always seems to have a high level of energy while also displaying a fantastic sensitivity to both our kids and our needs."
