Meet Dazeray

When Dazeray graduated from high school in 2011, her parents wanted to find a program where she wouldn't “sit around," her mom said.

Dazeray keeps busy at Camp Baker.  An outgoing person, she likes the day support program’s daily activities that include swimming and horseback riding in the summer, along with trips to local parks and shopping trips year round. She also shines at the camp's holiday dinners, where she’s been known to give instructions on good table manners.

"She enjoys going there and when she’s away from ARC, she talks about it constantly," her mom said. "At times I've tried to look at other places, and she says, 'No way!'"

Without day support, Dazeray probably would be staying with relatives during the day where there would be less activity. For her, this program has been the best solution.

"They look out for her there. I feel she's safe."
