Dear Camp Shout Out Friends:

We are less than 4 weeks away from our 45h season of Camp Shout Out: Youth Who Stutter and we would like to take the time to give a ‘Shout Out’ to EACH OF YOU for your generous donation to our program.  Our campers are going be amazed at the activities we have been able to plan because of your contributions. 

One parent of a camper told us: “Camp Shout Out is the one place where my son feels like he belongs. It is a space where not only is he working on his communication skills, but where he also has friends. Friends who understand what he goes through daily. My son has been bullied about his stuttering, but when he comes home from Camp Shout Out he sticks up for himself. His confidence soars!”

Camp Shout Out: Youth Who Stutter is a program born out of a passion to provide help for children and teens who stutter, to make their world a better place and with your help we are meeting that goal.

We are honored by your support of our program and hope you will continue to join us in making the world a better place for young people who stutter.  

There's still snow on the ground, the lake is frozen, and the temperatures are below freezing BUT THE SUN IS SHINING!!

As we are gearing up for our 5th session of Camp Shout Out: Youth Who Stutter, we would like to take the time to THANK EACH OF YOU for your generous donation to our program.

One of our returning campers wrote an essay and stated the following: “……I WILL make a change in the world for the stuttering community, whether it’s just a simple paper about us, or a life changing discovery. We all have to start somewhere and I’m starting at Camp Shout Out”

We are honored by your support of our program and hope you will continue to join us in making the world a better place for young people who stutter.

Just this past August  more than 100 children who stutter, speech-language pathologists and graduate students gathered on the shores of Big Blue Lake in Holton, MI for an amazing week of laughter, tears, networking, learning and fun.

Many powerful experiences happen during the week of camp and others occur once our campers head home and back to school.  Just recently we received this email from a parent of a high school aged camper:

"On the first day of school my son came home and told me that this new teacher made each student get up in front of the class and talk about themselves.  You know my heart sank, until all of a sudden he gets this big grin on his face and says, "I did it!" I asked him if he was scared, he said, "no mom, I just got up, took a breath, and talked and I didn't stutter!" Now  if you know my son like the rest of us and I know you do, that is just not him. I am so proud of him and I told him so. He said mom, don't cry. He says he is not going to do that in his English class because the bullies are in there, but THIS IS A BIG STEP!

Will you please share this with  every one who was involved with him these past few years. There is such a difference in him when he gets home from camp! You all make such a difference in his life and I am so thankful!. I just had to share this with you!"

Stories like this are what keeps each of us working as hard as we can to make a difference in the world for young people who stutter and we COULD NOT do it without YOU.

We would like to take the time to THANK EACH OF YOU for your generous donation to this program
