The Mother-Son Picnic was a BLAST! Caden and I both really enjoyed our time together. The frisbee was an excellent choice for the gift…so many moms and sons throwing their frisbees together and Caden said that was one of his favorite things we did. 😊

I just wanted to pass on my gratitude for such a wonderful day at Deer Run with my son today.  Everything was perfectly planned with the boxed lunches, activities and communication prior to the event. All the staff were pleasant and helpful.  Being there today brought back memories of when I was a kid at camp and I am so thankful I was able to experience it again with my son. I will say it was the most enjoyable day I’ve had in a long time. Thanks again!

I just want to take a moment and brag on @deerrunretreat…I asked if I could bring Connor his own food since he has so many allergies. They called me and took note of all of his food triggers, spoke to the culinary team to come up with a meal that was safe for him, called to check it was ok, and then emailed me to verify the night before. Like...wow!
