In one summer, Camp Wediko helped changed our 11 year old son’s negative dynamic within our family. Diagnosed with Reactive Attachment Disorder and feeling he was “the worst kid”, the counselors at Camp Wediko, helped him realize he was not the only one struggling with such feelings. They offered safe support and therapy that enabled him to see himself more positively, which in turn led to a less angry child at home.
Camp Wediko made sure the kids and families there wanted to improve behavior and relationships. They offered academic support also, that made the transition back to school easier in the fall. But, most importantly, our son returned home ready to work on being part of the family. We adapted the Wediko structure of daily self-evaluation and rewards and used it successfully for 2 ½ years. Our home is a much safer, happier place because of the one summer our son spent at Wediko.
