1st Annual Undiagnosed Camp!

The National Ability Center hosted the 1st annual "Undiagnosed Camp" here in Park City, Utah. It was an incredible weekend! We had 5 families join us from all over the country, and everyday was jam-packed with fun, adaptive activities for the entire family: skiing, horseback riding, rock climbing, swimming at a hot spring inside of a crater, campfire sing-a-longs, and bowling- never a dull moment! And the best part, aside from all of the great smiles, was that these families were able to get to know other families just like them. No explanations needed, they understood each other's situation, and the siblings were able to meet other siblings who had an undiagnosed brother or sister- most of them had never met anyone like them before!

A great step towards building an undiagnosed community! The memories made this weekend will be with these families for a lifetime! They were truly touched by coming to beautiful Utah, being able to do activities they never thought possible, and being able to commune with other undiagnosed families.

 

Camper Testimonials:

We really appreciate the NAC and Jeremy and everyone who made this camp so amazing! We were so impressed by the facilities they have, and the extra care they take for safety and comfort. The kids have been talking about all the fun things we did and all the friends they made non-stop!

Thank you so much for all that you did to organize such incredible experiences for us!!! I can’t tell you how happy we are that we were able to join you. We loved getting to know you and all the families. The food and the camp accommodations were fantastic (and I liked not having to worry about preparing meals!). And the activities were absolutely amazing for all five of us. We have never had a vacation that incorporated all our different needs so well!

When we were driving home from the airport, I looked over at Zack, and he had tears coming down his face. He said he was sad because he wanted to go back to Utah. He is having such a blast telling everyone at home about his trip, though. And so is Jeremy. Jeremy has been teasing me about the trip. He writes that skiing was still too fast, but he writes it with a huge grin, and he says he wants to do it again. He says his list of favorite things were the horses, the skiing, and the rock climbing. Zack’s list of favorite things were the skiing, the swimming, the campfire, and dancing to Happy with Mary Elizabeth. My favorite was watching all three of our kids have so much fun with new friends.
