Laughters Voice Kids Camp update
Be sure to listen to CBC Toronto Metro Morning tomorrow (Tuesday) after 7.35 to hear Felix Skinner – whose idea the camp is – and his dad talking about the new summer camp for kids who stutter.
As a quick update, the camp is booked for July 13-19 at the Mansfield Outdoor Centre, less than 2 hrs north of Toronto.
Thanks to the support of Harmonize for Speech the cost is now only $400 for the full week.
There are also 2 free places thanks to a fundraising event being held in Toronto on Friday June 6.
There are still 5 or 6 kids needed to make it viable, so please spread the work about this high quality traditional summer camp especially for kids who stutter.
May is decision time – Sunday June 1st is the registration deadline.

The above-noted summer camp is for students who stutter who are between ages 6 and 18.
“It’s a wide range,” Andrew Harding comments, “and completely in keeping with Mansfield’s normal programs of activities. That’s the beauty of this.”
I am highly impressed with the work that the Canadian Stuttering Association (CSA), a national, non-profit organization, is doing on behalf of kids and adults who stutter. The work that this organization is doing is a source of tremendous inspiration for me and for many other people who stutter, and their friends and families.
I was pleased to read a message today from a visitor to the CSA website who had read an article I wrote some years ago regarding my own experiences with stuttering during my earlier years:
As well, similar topics are addressed in an online video that we put together a few years back:
