Over 40 kids & teens joined us at Temescal Canyon Gateway Park on September 21 & 22, 2019, for this terrific 2-day camp. After a little mingling and getting to know each other, campers jumped into exciting activities like group hikes, super fun games, art workshops, and a team-building ropes course, all designed to encourage cooperation, collaboration, and communication.
Meanwhile, parents participated in an intimate share session led by SAY Founder, Taro Alexander, where they were free to ask questions, exchange ideas, and express the hopes, fears, frustrations, and accomplishments that have been a part of their individual journies with stuttering.
Some special visitors stopped by, too, including SAY Board members Shachar Scott and Judah Rosenberg, and Aaron Podell from MatchBack.org. Campers and their families were also treated to a screening of ‘My Beautiful Stutter‘. The independent documentary film from Director Ryan Gielen follows several young people who stutter and their experiences attending Camp SAY, and made a deep and powerful impact on us all.
Endless thanks to our Leadership Team, Counselors, special guests, parents, and of course, our wonderful campers! We’re so very glad you joined us for this beautiful weekend! 😍

“My son Trevor has attended Camp SAY the past two years and it has helped him and his confidence immensely. For the first time in his life his stuttering is not looked at as something that has to be “fixed” but more of a special part of who he is. I want to continue his positive growth of self confidence and belonging.” -Camp Participant’s Mother
“SAY allows young people to experience a very accepting and supportive environment. I was impressed with everything…” -Edward G. Conture, PH.D., CCC-SLP, BRS-FD, Professor Emeritus, Vanderbilt University
