Prayers For Melody and Summer Camp

We found a really great camp in the Muskoka area that is designed for kids with autism that is free.  It is paid for by our local autism family respite program and would be an awesome opportunity for her to work on her social skills and do some things that she has never done.

She would go for an entire week and stay over night.  She is assigned a counsellor and they do a lot of 1 on 1 activities and group bonding activities.  It is done as a lottery system and we really hope that she gets picked.

We covet your prayers that Melody will get picked and have a great time.  She is so excited at the prospect of going and trying out some new things.  Here is a link to the camp  Kinark Autism Camp.  The grounds look so pretty and it's very spacious. 

We also applied for a family weekend and the family week there.  I can't wait to see if we are accepted for these.  The family weekend would be so beneficial if Melody is chosen for the summer camp b/c it is held in May and June, so we would have an opportunity to go and see the grounds before she had her time later in the summer. =)

We should know something by Monday by either email or by mail. We're so excited to see if she can go. There was an overwhelming response for the family weekend and we are on waitlist for that right now. So, we'll see. =D
