"All camp activities are geared to the children's abilities and age groups. There's no pressure. Disabilities never stop them from believing in themselves," says CJCF Founder and President Bev Gough. "At Camp Friendship, kids don't waste time dwelling on things they canít do. Instead they have the time of their lives doing the things they can," Gough adds.
