Success Stories

 

Meet Billy

“I’m Billy’s biggest advocate,” says his sister Cookie.


Billy, 53, has been attending ARC’s overnight summer program at Camp Baker for more than a decade. “I think it helps him open up and experience new things. Seeing his peers do things that he’s afraid of inspires him to think, ‘if that person can do it, I can do it,’ ” she says. 


It took Billy about five years to participate in horseback riding, canoeing and paddle boating, but when he did, “he loved it! Once he tries something, he’s ecstatic,” she added.
While Billy is on vacation, Cookie has a vacation, too. “At Camp Baker they look forward to seeing him, and he looks forward to seeing them. Gives me a little down time.”


“ARC has been marvelous,” she said, explaining families can be comfortable that their loved ones are safe and happy.


“That little bit of time gets you refreshed.”
