"Camp Grace Bentley was the most saving factor in my life for 11 years. It made the rest of my life bearable. It taught me to overcome obstacles by watching others live their lives with courage. Eventually our handicaps became almost invisible to others and ourselves."

AAA Insurance Agent and Avid Swimmer & Skier
"Everyone at Camp Grace Bentley treats my son as their own. The counselors take care of him the same way I do. I love you all for what you do."
– Ms. Tammy Thompson. Mother of Longtime Camper

"Camp Grace Bentley has been such a great opportunity for our daughter Chelsey to experience. She has made friends, gained independence, and had the opportunity to enjoy camp with her peers. The staff is absolutely wonderful with the kids, all giving 100% to make them each feel special. They are all so enthusiastic and helpful. This camp has been a high point in our daughters life. She will tell you she is going for twelve glorious days and I don't know who feels that more, her or her parents"
– Bob & Terry Ramsay
"I remember the first time Ryan attended camp. I was so nervous to leave him for the two weeks at camp with people other than relatives. After meeting the staff, I was much more comfortable with my decision for him to attend camp. The ratio of campers to counselors is great. The counselors are very attentive to the children and truly seem to love the time they spend with them, which is very important to me. Their days and nights are filled with fun. I have another child and with Ryan away at camp, it gives us a chance to do the things that Ryan does not enjoy to do. I know that Ryan has a great time at camp and he looks forward to the next session of camp.
If he is happy, then so am I. Isn't that what we want for our special needs children-fun and happiness?
I think Camp Grace Bentley gives Ryan both."
– Linda Buckman
"This is the first time my daughter attended Grace Camp Bentley, it is the most wonderful place around for your children with special needs. The counselors were amazing and the grounds were awesome and clean. My daughter came home just the way we sent her, loved and happy. I would recommend this camp to anyone. What a pleasant experience and such loving and caring staff. I will continue to send her to the camp as many years as she is able to attend. Thank you to the awesome people who put there lives aside for these very special children to have a memorable time. A++++++"
