Kellen’s father Dan asked his doctors ‘What is this child going to be able to do?’ “And they told us ‘Anything he wants to, but just a little bit differently.’”
When he was born, Kellen was diagnosed with cancer, paralyzing him from the waist down. It was then that his physical therapist told now six-year-old Kellen's parents Elizabeth and Dan about Pine Tree Camp.
Kellen went to Pine Tree Camp last year. For the first time, being in a wheelchair did not matter. He was immersed in Maine's beautiful outdoors, participating in activities we may take for granted, like swimming in North Pond's cool waters or fishing for a prized bass.
It's true...Pine Tree Camp's sessions are six days, but the impact on our campers lasts forever. Today, Kellen is counting down the days to Pine Tree Camp again.
