Another George Springer All-Star MVP Camp SAY Houston is in the books! This year’s camp was our biggest yet, as over 200 families joined us for three phenomenal days of fun and games, information and connections, and laughter and tears.

On Friday morning, campers and parents gathered at Houston’s Magnolia Hotel to mingle and learn more about the camp itinerary before enjoying a pre-game meet & greet with George Springer! Everyone was thrilled to see George and his family share stories, answer questions and take a group photo with all the Camp SAY kids.

Campers and their families were then invited to Minute Maid Park to attend the Astros game where a great time was had by all, especially when the Astros won! A beautiful fireworks show capped off the evening perfectly.

Saturday and Sunday began with breakfast and a quick introduction to camp from our Founder, Taro Alexander. The kids then joined our Camp SAY counselors for some collaborative games and activities that encourage teamwork, build confidence, champion communication and of course, are fun! Meanwhile, parents participated in an intimate share session with Taro, where they were completely 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.

After lunch, everyone came back together for a screening of the documentary ‘My Beautiful Stutter’. The independent film from Director Ryan Gielen follows several young people who stutter and their experiences attending Camp SAY. It was the first time the film had been presented to an audience made up entirely of members of the stuttering community, and it made a deep and powerful impression on us all.

We’d like to thank everyone who attended the 2019 George Springer All-Star MVP Camp SAY. The passion and participation of every camper, parent and family member in attendance made this year’s camp an incredibly special and meaningful adventure for us all. We hope to see you again next year, Houston!

I’m thrilled to team up with Camp SAY, and wish that I had an organization like this when I was a kid.
