Hear What They’re Saying…

“I got to the top of the climb and I cried. I’m 75 years old and I didn’t know I could still do that.”
-Veteran Participant

“Thanks for another great experience. My wife and I had a great time and you made us feel that we were appreciated. I think you give you clients the sense they are with a professional organization and that leads to the confidence they have in SPLORE. I know we are proud when we say we volunteer for you.”
-Gerry and Kris Forsdick, Volunteers

“The culture of Splore is amazing. The guides have big hearts. Not just the typical ride down the river. They genuinely care.”
-Hugh Ferguson, Board Member

“Dear Splore, I am writing to thank you for the wonderful service you have performed for my son. Joey is a wonderful and spirited boy, but his Asperger’s Syndrome, especially at his young age, is a real impediment in social and educational settings. Prior attempts to get him to rock climb had proved very difficult and anxiety producing; and our “instruction” seemed to be turning him away from the sport more than anything else. Joey’s volunteer, Alaina, and the rest of your team brought him out of his shell and taught him to climb. He loves it, and moreover, he beams with pride for days after each lesson. This pride also seems to spill over into the rest of his life: he asks to try new games, new foods, and seems better equipped in new situations. I am convinced that his lessons with Splore have contributed greatly to this effect.

Finally, my husband Jeff, and I can’t thank you enough for making Joey happy. The life of a child with Asperger’s is filled with anxiety. It can be difficult for them to let their guard down and just have fun. His smile and laugh are the most beautiful things in the world to me, and I want to thank you for bringing them out.
