"Educo changed my son's life in every way! He has had "Educo summers" for five years. Before that, he was a boy that preferred inside activities on his own (computer, video games, movies). As his Educo experiences progressed, Tanner became more and more excited about rock climbing, white water rafting, and LOVED hiking! At school, he began to join many outdoor activities and give them a try. It was awesome! The BIGGEST change - make that REVOLUTION - in him was SOCIAL! Through Educo, he learned what it was like to be part of a 100% totally accepting, supportive, community of peers. He found out that he liked to be funny (liked the reaction) and is an avid class-clown today! He discovered that he really did know how to do some things and when he helped someone, it felt good and he made friends. FRIENDS! Tanner learned the skill, the art, of making friends... of being a good friend; of helping someone if they fall and knowing they would do the same for him. What a long way my son has come! From the shy boy I first dropped off at Educo five years ago - to a handsome, confident, VERY social, active 17-year-old."
