Testimonials

“Thank you for providing a much-needed, encouraging, positive, and creative space for our youth. After a year of quarantine and technology, this camp provided exactly what campers (and I) needed!”

“Both my kids warmed up and connected with the group amazingly fast, and I am 100% sure it is because of the trauma-informed, sensitive, respectful approach that all the adults at the program apply. The kids who had already been at camp before we arrived were all very friendly and kind, and I heard the campers benefit from gentle coaching about how to be welcoming and inclusive of new kids. Both kids came home shocked and happy to have been asked about their pronouns. As a family that doesn’t look like most of the children’s literature they are offered at school, I am so grateful that they could be themselves among people who honor their experiences, feelings, and family world.”

My girl is a non verbal girl in the spectrum, but every time I took the bag with the clay on it she got very excited. She and her brother also liked the painting part. As a mom, I liked the lunches, books and the teacher and staff people.”ok forward to next year!”

“Kaas taught my boys about conflict resolution. Ashley taught them to express themselves positively.”

“AITG is one of the most inclusive, understanding,
and woke groups I have ever had the opportunity to work with. They consider everyone in every situation and stride towards inclusivity and fairness.” 

“The Clay Workshop was such an important part of our week because we don’t know many people here yet since we just moved here. My kids got to interact with other kids and that was great. Also the meals we got helped immensely. I appreciate this program so much. Everybody is so nice and helpful and the garden is such a beautiful space.

“Noah has so much fun. Thank you for an awesome camp!”

“I believe that the use of the skills taught by AITG helps to normalize the ways in which my child experiences the world. Through exposure and through practice and shared language, he is more receptive to using the skills and tools he has learned to help him navigate conflicts, bring self-awareness to a given situation.”

“Practicing conflict resolution with new friends was an invaluable opportunity for my child. She came home singing every day.”
