Chatter about Camp Allen!
Moms, counselors, staff, and campers sound off about their experience!
Camp Allen is a place of acceptance. It’s a place of happiness. It’s a place where you will meet the most amazing people on earth and every camper will change your life. It’s a place where miracles happen. Camp Allen is one of the only places where people come together and can call home instantly.

Camp Allen has been a life changing experience. I thought I knew camp spirit before but I can say that’s not true. Nothing compares to the family that is Camp Allen. Its a place to be who you are and be free, to be completely happy and to celebrate your individuality. It’s home.

My brother, Richard, attends one session each summer and works at the camp for the balance of the season. This has been a wonderful experience for him and the highlight of the year. He’s made many friends and been given a true sense of self-worth. I can’t say enough about the positive impact that Camp Allen has had on him and we are all so thankful for the opportunity he’s been given.
I hear that rotating staff slept near Flo at night so as to better be prepared to help her during overnights.
Just when I thought Camp Allen could do no more to “go above and beyond” for Flo to get in her Camp experience this year…you all just keep on giving! That really was something to hear. Really dedicated staff…thank you to infinity does not even cover it! I would tell you that I will put Camp Allen in my will…but, well…that’s already been done!
If you are looking for a fun filled vacation for your child or individual you support I highly recommend Camp Allen. The staff is awesome not to mention their friendliness and genuine concern for all those who attend the camp. There are numerous activities available for all the individuals to participate in. The best thing about Camp Allen is the huge smiles I see on everyones face when I arrive to pick up Laurinda. Thank you Camp Allen!
Camp Allen is the best week my son spends all summer! The staff is tremendous and full of enthusiasm and my son lights up when he is there!
Cal and Michaela’s Mom
The staff at Camp Allen, from counselors to directors to kitchen help and everyone in between are extraordinary people. Every last one was dedicated to the camper’s safety, happiness, and well being. Patient, energetic, full of life and fun, they are the heart and soul of Camp Allen!
Having attended Camp Allen for many years, I would highly recommend Camp Allen to all my friends and to any interested parties. Camp is great and staff are tuned in to the needs of campers. Very polite and professional.
The thing I love most about camp is that once every camper passes through that gate and comes up the hill… it’s an experience of a lifetime. We don’t have jet skis or archery but I can 100 % guarantee you…none of that is needed! The friendships and bonds you will make are worth so much more than words can say. We don’t limit anyone because they have a disability. Camp sees the beauty in EVERYONE. To me, that is something very rare and special!
Adam has been going to Camp Allen since he was 8 years old. He looks forward to his “week away” months before it happens, and always comes home with some great stories to tell. He tells us Camp Allen is “the one place where I can be myself and everyone understands. Adam will continue to attend Camp Allen as long as he can. It is a special place in his heart.
